Default Dolly Parton Had Health Scare Last Year

This article is from

In a new interview from Dolly's February press junket in London published here this week by Clash Music magazine, she confided to the reviewer that the past year nearly “broke” her emotionally and that she faced a health crisis at the time. Although the piece doesn't include direct quotes of what she exactly said on the subject, it paraphrased that she said “she has never encountered an unconquerable challenge, although the last year, she says, in which she lost a brother and niece in close succession, and she and her husband faced serious health problems while trying to deliver a number of work projects including this musical and the soundtrack to Netflix's Jennifer Aniston-produced Dumplin', came close to breaking her.” The year certainly featured many challenges. Her Stampede dinner theatre in Pigeon Forge saw protests and threats from white nationalists upset over her decision to remove the word “Dixie” from its name now that its Civil War themes had been entirely replaced over the years with Wild West themes, and it was announced just weeks after that decision that she would no longer serve as grand marshal for the annual spring parade in Pigeon Forge, from which she later joked she “was fired.” In September, close friend and co-star Burt Reynolds passed away, followed in December by the death of her youngest brother, Floyd. (Her niece, Tever, actually passed the previous year, in March 2017.) And although she and Netflix lobbied hard for a nomination, she failed to receive an Oscar nod for her work on the Dumplin' Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. In February of this year while in London promoting the West End opening of her 9 To 5: The Musical, she first confirmed her husband's unspecified health problems which she said led her to plan more short-term projects this year where she would be away from him for a few days or weeks at a time instead of the months that it takes to tour. The new interview released this week is the first to add she had serious health issues of her own last year, but it was noticed at her recent Dollywood appearance that she was being followed at each of her stops by a paramedic, including having the paramedic walk behind her car in her park tour, which was not the case in the past. She normally does not release information about health issues she has faced, and the public usually only finds out about them much later, for example when the tabloids in October 2015 claimed she had stomach cancer and she put out a rare statement that she was just suffering from kidney stones and had them surgically removed a few weeks earlier. However, her sister Stella claimed in an interview six months later that she had actually been near death due to contracting sepsis in addition to kidney stones and that was why she was absent from the set of the first Coat Of Many Colors movie that filmed that summer and fall.
I really pray she gets better!
Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.
Deuteronomy 15:10
In loving memory of my best friend, my Mama.

I hope she is doing better. Maybe she should slow down on some of her projects. I know she has so much going on her life but taking some down-time might help.
