Aretha Franklin Resting After Hospital VisitPublished by Dior Noir on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at 11:19 am.
Aretha Franklin is at home recuperating after a stay at Detroit’s Sinai Grace Hospital. The Queen of Soul’s rep said she was admitted to the hospital at the recommendation of her doctors, but wouldn’t elaborate on her medical issue.
The past few months have been hectic for Franklin and the stress may be taking its toll. In August she canceled a string of performances after suffering two broken ribs and abdominal pain that resulted from a fall. September found her at the hospital again, when her son had emergency surgery after being severely beaten.
Following her recent hospital stint, Franklin is said to be ”resting comfortably.” She’ll be sitting out of performances for the rest of 2010, so hopefully she’ll take all the time she needs to get back on her feet. ”I would like to thank my friends, fans and supporters for all the beautiful flowers and their many well wishes,” she said in a statement.
