Elizabeth Taylor was diagnosed five years ago with congestive heart failure. Last week she announced she would be undergoing heart surgery to correct a problem with blood leakage from a heart valve. On Thursday, Taylor bypassed her publicist to address fans’ concerns publicly via her Twitter feed.

“Dear Friends, My heart procedure went off perfectly,” she wrote. “It’s like having a brand new ticker. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes. I know they all helped. Love you, Elizabeth.”

Wishing you a speedy recovery Dame Elizabeth!
