John Wilkinson, Elvis former rhythm guitarist, has been taken to the hospital, where doctors performed surgery. He had complaints about heavy pains in his stomach, and the doctors advised him to have an operation. John Wilkinson is OK now, but it will take at least three weeks before he can leave the hospital.
Update December 5, 2007 from ElvisMatters:
Good news! Our dear friend-of-the-family John Wilkinson is doing much better. He has been walking a little, and the doctors are pleased with his progress. He will stay for probably another 2 weeks at the hospital, until he feels ready to go home again.
