Over the weekend, Elton John‘s publicist confirmed that the entertainer underwent an appendectomy last Thursday and is resting at home in Nice, France.

In a note on his website, John thanked fans for their support. “Your well wishes have touched me deeply and will play a big part in my recovery,” it read in part. “I cannot wait to see you all and thank you in person when I resume my concert schedule later this year.”

Last month, John revealed that he had an appendix abscess but pushed through 10 shows. After a stern warning from his doctors in which they called his condition a “ticking time bomb,” he finally cancelled a series of concerts in Europe to have the surgery.

Get well soon!
