This is difficult news to swallow, readers, but the surgery Lindsay Lohan is undergoing today is not life-threatening. She'll be fine.
We'll let you take a moment to process such information, as we explaine that Lohan's crotch was not the only thing on fire today; she's having her appendix removed.
"She does have appendicitis, and she is getting her appendix removed," rep, Leslie Sloane, said.
"I'm shocked," a friend of the actress told People magazine. "I talked to her last night and she told me she was not feeling well but she thought it was a 24-hour-flu."
We're not sure what's so shocking. That Lindsay's self-diagnosis was mistaken? A lot of people undergo appendectomies: a Hollywood Gossip staff member's parents ... Meredith Grey ...
This is not the first health scare for Lohan. She fractured her wrist in September after a fall at a party in New York City; and was hospitalized in July after becoming "overheated and dehydrated," Sloane said at the time.
She also recently complained about the bruises on her thighs while practicing pole dancing for her role as a stripper in the upcoming thriller I Know Who Killed Me.
Or that could've been from a typical Saturday night out. Not that Kevin Federline would know anythig about that.
