Get well soon! Lara Logan was rushed to the hospital this past week, after reportedly suffering from internal bleeding and digestive disease diverticulitis.

The 60 Minutes reporter, 43, was taken to a Washington D.C.-area hospital on Wednesday, Feb. 25, where Page Six reported she is expected to remain for a few days.

A spokesperson for 60 Minutes had no comment on the specifics of Logan's condition, but told Us Weekly, "We wish Lara a very speedy recovery.

This is not Logan's first scare in recent years. In 2011, she was sexually assaulted and beaten by a mob in Cairo, Egypt, while reporting on the Arab Spring for 60 Minutes. Last fall, the D.C. native was quarantined in a South African hotel after reporting from inside a Liberian hospital that was treating Ebola patients.

Logan's hospitalization comes several weeks after CBS lost its veteran 60 Minutes correspondent, Bob Simon, who tragically died after a car crash on Feb. 11. Simon's fellow journalists mourned his passing on social media, remembering his contributions to the field.

"Heartbreaking news about Bob Simon of @60Minutes, a brilliant writer and reporter and someone I admired deeply," Katie Couric tweeted.

Anderson Cooper added: "Stunned to report the death of legendary CBSNews correspondent #BobSimon."
