Earlier this month, Sharon Jones was diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer, which forced her to postpone the release of her new album and all upcoming tour dates.

Yesterday, Jones had surgery to remove the cancerous tumor. In a short statement posted on Twitter early this morning, Jones wrote, “Out of surgery, and I am feeling better than I ever expected. The nurses at the hospital are taking care of me and I am feeling so grateful.” She tweeted a few hours later, “Tubes in my throat, tubes in my nose, tubes in my stomach, tubes in my–I’m all tubed up!”
