Financial advisor Suze Orman is recovering after undergoing an emergency appendectomy surgery last weekend.

Her spokeswoman Kristin Bouton tells the Chicago Sun-Times that Orman had the surgery Saturday, her 59th birthday.

She was released Sunday and is now resting at a Chicago hotel. Bouton said that Orman, a Chicago native, will be "taking a couple days to recover" before heading home to Florida, where she lives with her longtime partner, brand manager Kathy Travis.

This past March, Ormon released a new book, Suze Orman's 2010 Action Plan.
