Dame Elizabeth Taylor is quite the techno-savvy lady — so much so that she’s taken to her Twitter page to let her fans know that she’s going to the hospital for a heart procedure, instead of the old-fashioned way of releasing a statement via a publicist.

Her series of Tweets reads, in full:

“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.”

Our thoughts are with you, Dame Elizabeth!
