Liz Taylor tweets about heart surgery

Dame Elizabeth Taylor is taking to her Twitter page to let her fans know that she is checking into the hospital to undergo surgery. Her publicist confirms to Showbiz Tonight that Liz “eloquently” tweeted this earlier today:

“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”

We wish Liz a speedy recovery!
