I'll be back on air tomorrow. Had an appendicitis and had to have sudden surgery last night— Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper) December 2, 2014
Anderson Cooper was inexplicably absent from his CNN show Anderson Cooper 360° on Monday night.
He started experiencing stomach pains last Tuesday while covering the protests in Ferguson. The pains got worse over Thanksgiving while he was in France visiting a sick relative. He was examined by his doctor in New York on Sunday, rushed to the ER that night for the appendectomy, and released from the hospital on Monday.
