Glenn Beck suffered a sudden attack of appendicitis Wednesday and was taken to an undisclosed hospital to have his appendix removed.

Beck left his radio show Wednesday complaining that he was not feeling well. Mercury Radio president Christopher Balfe confirmed to radio blog NTS Media that Beck was having his appendix removed at an undisclosed hospital. Balfe also joked that "before going under Glenn asked the doctor to draw out the surgery procedure on a blackboard."

Judge Andrew Napolitano guest-hosted Beck's 5PM show on Fox News in his absence, adding that he is expected to make a full recovery and return soon.
