Elizabeth Taylor Says Heart Surgery Went Perfectly

Iconic actress Elizabeth Taylor took to her Twitter page Thursday to assure fans she is doing great after heart surgery. The 77-year-old Hollywood maven said the procedure went “perfectly” and thanked fans for their prayers and good wishes.


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!
