Pastor Rick Warren is recovering after an emergency surgery.
Warren, best-selling author and pastor of Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, California, was rushed to a hospital Thursday morning and immediate surgery was required for a perforated intestine.
Rick’s wife, Kay Warren was mid-flight to Northern Ireland when she heard the news and immediately flew back to be with her husband, according to an update posted to the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church Facebook page. CCV was hosting Kay Warren for the Illuminate Women’s Conference.
Sunday, Rick Warren notified church members of his condition via email.
“Fortunately, my son, Josh, called me at the same moment of my pain, and he rushed over to drive me to an Urgent Care facility, where the doctor administered shots of antibiotics and a painkiller and advised me to get a CT scan the next morning. But as Josh and I were leaving, my body started shaking uncontrollably, so the Urgent Care doctor insisted that we immediately go to a hospital ER,” Warren explained in the email obtained by CBN News.
