You beat me to it, Pops. Here's some of the story via my local paper online.

Etta James hospitalized in Los Angeles for complications from abdominal surgery

LOS ANGELES Etta James was in stable condition Thursday after being hospitalized for complications from abdominal surgery she had last month, her manager said.

The 69-year-old blues singer was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

"Her condition is stabilized" but she had to cancel upcoming tour dates with B.B. King and Al Green, her manager, Lupe De Leon, said in an e-mail.

De Leon did not indicate when James was admitted but said the hospitalization was caused by "post-op complications" from her mid-June surgery. The complications and the nature of the surgery were not specified.

The Grammy Award-winning singer was "extremely disappointed" at having to cancel appearances, De Leon said.

"If it had been left solely up to her, she would have checked herself out of the hospital and started the tour regardless of her delicate health," De Leon said. "However, her doctor advised that were she to do so, it would put her at very great risk."

"We feel confident (that) by postponing her participation until Aug. 23, she will be in good shape to put on the kind of performance that Etta James' fans know and love," De Leon said.

During her 50-year career, James has scored a string of hits that include "At Last," "Trust in Me" and "A Sunday Kind of Love."

I just love Miss Etta James. May she be back at it, belting out those great vibes soon. I'd rather go blind than to see her go away!

My daughter likes to go out with me and dance to "At Last" if the band strikes it up...

I love to hear all of Etta's songs especially "Sugar on the Floor"...

Thoughts and prayers with Miss Etta for her healing. Every time I hear that first 'At Last...' I get a shiver.
