“I was really hoping to be ready to go back on stage now, but I find that I have to be more patient and follow the recommendations of my doctors. Our shows require a lot of organization and preparation, so we have to make decisions today that will affect the plans two months from now,” writes the performer.
She also adds that she is “very touched” by the messages of encouragement she received from fans on social media.
