Liz Taylor Appeals For Prayers Before Surgery
OCT 7, 2009 - The following is an announcement on the Twitter page of veteran actress Elizabeth Taylor:
“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.”
Taylor, 77, was diagnosed with congestive heart failure five years ago and also has endured severe back problems and a benign brain tumour operation. She made the announcement on her Twitter page, saying she wanted to break the news herself before the media found out.
