Dion explained that she was hoping to feel well enough to travel by now. However, Dion suggested that she must be patient with her doctors and continue to follow their prescribed regimen. “There’s a lot of organizing and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today which will affect the plans two months down the road. “I’m so happy to have my health back and that we all got over this pandemic.
