Former “Saturday Night Live” star Chris Kattan is in the hospital with a severe case of pneumonia that reportedly required emergency surgery.

Sources close to the situation reported that Kattan was rushed to the hospital Sunday after contracting an extreme case of pneumonia called Streptococcus Pneumoniae, according to TMZ. Doctors then operated on Kattan in an emergency procedure, the outlet reported.

Kattan’s surgery was successful and he has remained under observation at the hospital, TMZ continued. Doctors are hopeful his recovery will go well, and he could be released by Friday, according to the outlet.

Kattan may be well enough to return to work sometime in the near future, although it is not entirely clear when that will be, according to TMZ.
