Aretha Franklin Feeling Better After Severe Health Problems
The First lady of Soul is getting better, and will be back soon. Aretha Franklin won’t say what caused her latest health problems, but says she’s had a “miraculous” recovery and is looking forward to performing soon.“My treatments are going very well. My last CAT scan, my doctor at the CAT scan and everyone who sees this says that this is miraculous, absolutely miraculous,” Franklin said in a phone interview with the Associated Press on Tuesday according to an article in USA Today
“I was talking to Smokey Robinson, my oldest best friend Smokey, talking about the fact that some doctors are not very well acquainted with faith healing. And Smokey said, ‘Well, they just don’t know who your healer is.’
When asked directly what her health concern was, Franklin declined to go into specifics: “I’m not one to go into my personal health things.” But she said it was very common to women and “I just had to deal with it.” She said it was partly related to the health concern she had about three years ago that led her to cancel shows at that time.
Franklin acknowledged that she had worries about her health.”Any time you have cancellations you should be concerned. But all prayer is good, and keep me in your prayers until I am 100%, not 85, and back onstage,” she said.
I’m sure we’ll keep Aretha in our prayers.
