"Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak is recovering from emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine, according to a post from the game show's Twitter account.

The show must go on.

Sajak has been the host of Wheel of Fortune ever since he took over the role in 1983. The show paused taping for a day on Thursday, and resumed Friday with co-host Vanna White at the helm. However, Pat is back on the mend! The new episodes will air on December 9!

A photo attached to the tweet shows the iconic wall of letters spelling out "GET WELL SOON PAT!".

While Pat prefers just mustard on his sausage, Vanna likes to pair that condiment with ketchup, resulting in their spat.

It appears that the Wheel Of Fortune is in the midst of filming its holiday-themed episodes, judging by two more photos [SEEN HERE] that the show's Twitter account shared on November 8.

The show is now filming Disney Week at its Los Angeles studio, and Mickey Mouse is the one turning the letters in place of Vanna White.

In the first image, White stands next to the famous wheel with Disney characters Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto.
