Elizabeth Taylor Going in For Heart Surgery

Elizabeth Taylor announced today that she’ll be going into the hospital for heart surgery later this afternoon.

She took to her Twitter no only to inform fans of her condition, but also to ask for people’s prayers.

She wrote in three separate posts:

“Dear Friends, I would like to let you know before it gets in the papers that I am going into the hospital to have a procedure on my heart.”

“It's very new and involves repairing my leaky valve using a clip device, without open heart surgery, so that my heart will function better.”

“Any prayers you happen to have lying around I would dearly appreciate. I'll let you know when it's all over. Love you, Elizabeth.”

Elizabeth plans on informing her 155,944 Twitter followers when the procedure is complete. She did not say when or where she is having treatment.

A representative for Taylor did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment. Our thoughts are with her during this difficult time!
