International opera star Measha Brueggergosman is awaiting double-bypass surgery in a Calgary hospital.

The Fredericton-born soprano, who now calls Nova Scotia home, wrote on her Facebook page Saturday that she is a patient at Foothills Medical Centre.

Brueggergosman underwent emergency surgery in Toronto in 2009 after suffering a life-threatening tear in her aorta.

“Nearly 10 years to the day of my aorta exploding, I woke up in Calgary on the day I was meant to fly home to Nova Scotia with severe chest pain,” the post reads.
