“Ellen rushed Portia to the hospital on Friday night, she was in a lot of pain,” a source People.
They continued, “It was appendicitis and she had surgery.”
According to the Mayo Clinic, Appendicitis is a common ailment in which the lining of the appendix is blocked and becomes inflamed. The condition causes extreme pain, and if not treated immediately the organ can burst. Normally, the surgery requires the removal of the appendix from the body.
If the person isn’t treated in time, and the organ bursts, the situation can be very serious, even deadly.

The good news, it appears Ellen was able to rush Portia to the hospital and the surgery was reportedly a success.
As you know, Ellen and Portia married in August 2008 after same-sex marriage was legalized in California. The couple quarantined together, during which the host tested positive for COVID-19 and was accused of harboring a toxic work environment with former employees of her show.
“It broke my heart; I couldn’t have gone through everything I went through without her,” Ellen told People. Adding, “It was a horrible time in my life, and she was a rock. She kept me going and tried to help me put things in perspective.”
The couple both claim their relationship grew stronger during the pandemic, and they have grown as a couple.
“We’ve grown together as a couple, and we really consider each other and put our relationship first,” de Rossi said. Adding, “By doing that, you become a lot more solid. I can’t imagine spending time with anyone but her.”
“We think the same things, say the same things at the same time, finish each other’s sandwiches — no, sentences. We’re in a rhythm that’s easy,” Ellen agreed.
