Babs told the girls and her audience that she will having heart surgery later on in the week to replace a faulty heart valve.
She revealed that she and her doctors have known about the procedure for months and decided that now was the best time to proceed forward. She will be in recovery from the procedure for about 3 months, but she will be able to call into the show from time to time when she feels up to it.
Normally, we would be worried about an 80-year-old woman having such risky surgery, but Babs is a tough old broad! If anyone can make it through, she can!
We're pulling for you, bb! Here's hoping everything goes well and you feel better soon!
