Natalie Cole In Hospital

Natalie Cole was admitted to the hospital recently:

Natalie Cole has suffered a setback in her treatment for hepatitis C and has been hospitalized in New York, PEOPLE has learned.  The side effects of Cole’s grueling chemotherapy treatment for the liver disease, paired with a strenuous promotional schedule in support of her just-released new album Still Unforgettable, are what led to the Grammy winner’s hospitalization, her reps tell.  Cole, 58, was diagnosed with the liver disease in April and has been free of the hepatitis C virus since starting treatment this summer. She will return to her home in Los Angeles in the coming days and will be on a month-long bed rest so she can recuperate, say her reps. She is also postponing her planned October performances.

“It’s debilitating,” she said. “My hair is starting to fall out [from the chemo]. I lost 15 lbs. and I looked like a scarecrow.”  Cole said her “the show must go on” philosophy has helped her cope with her health issues.

We hope the best for Ms. Cole, she has had a hard knock life. She is most definitely a trooper. We pray she makes it past this obstacle as well.
