At 71 years old, when your health is in jeopardy, things are always up in the air. Nothing is guaranteed, and it's a scary thing!

For Aretha Franklin, it looks like she took the right steps to make sure her ongoing health problems are no more — and she's now calling her recovery and improvement 'miraculous.'

We're just happy she's okay!

If you remember, Aretha had to cancel a BUNCH of shows, worrying fans those close to her alike. Strangely, she never said exactly what the problem was — and we STILL have no idea!

BUT, she did give an update on her health, saying:

"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. 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'.

"All prayer is good, and keep me in your prayers until I am 100% not 85%, and back on-stage. The most important thing is my comfort and going at my pace. Nothing is more important than my health."

Well, whatever the cause for the turnaround in the right direction, we're just glad she's improving! And nice, name drop with Smokey!

    Aretha was never actually sick. COME ON PEOPLE… She's a DIVA and over dramatic. She had stomach surgery. How else would you explain her dramatic weight loss. She was fat people and now she acts like it was such a big deal, I just wish she would get over herself and tell the world the real reason she cancelled her shows. I am so over her. She didn't even have the decency to go to Whitney's funeral because she was so called "sick" and yet she did a concert that night. WAKE UP PEOPLE Aretha Franklin needs a reality check.
