Elizabeth Taylor has had “an ongoing condition” regarding her health. Be sure to check out photos and videos below, and get more info below!

According to reports, Taylor was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical center earlier this week after suffering “symptoms caused by congestive heart failure.” Jamie Cadwell, the 78-year old’s representative says that the “issue is being addressed and she is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Elizabeth has had a troubled heart. She was diagnosed about five years ago with congestive heart failure, and back in the fall of 2009, she underwent a new procedure without actually having open heart surgery. As a member of Twitter, the legendary actress posted a tweet explaining this process to repair one of her “leaky valves” by using a clip device. Sounds pretty interesting.

Her publicist, Sally Morrison, offered the following statement:

“Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health.”

During her stay in the hospital, Elizabeth was honored for her continuous charity work for AIDS held at the gala in New York this Wednesday night. Now that’s dedication!

As a fan, my thoughts and prayers go out to Elizabeth Taylor and all of her loved ones as she is being hospitalized for heart failure. You may leave your best wishes in the comment box. Also, be sure to check out photos of the screen legend and see a video clip regarding the good ole ticker below.
