I'm shocked you didn't know about her scheduled appearance during Bo's illness. That was in SOD and I believe Maggie even mentioned onscreen she was going to get Alice or something and the next episode it was never mentioned.
Whatever the case, they do want to use her but it's just very hard for her and when she doesn't feel up to it, then it's a definite no. I still recall in early 2007 when rumors circulated that her doctors did not want her working AT ALL. I still wonder if maybe she isn't supposed to work but she wants to in some capacity so Days works with her and when she is able, she appears. I just hope she is well and that we see her for Christmas.
The idea of writing her health in is an uncomfortable one. I don't know if she would want it and I don't know if the show would want it. Some stars are very close to her so they may feel very uncomfortable playing it. It would be hard for me to watch it, especially right now with my grandmother being hospitalized and not doing so well. I think it would be very difficult and I even heard rumors that they were thinking of killing Mickey but since it's so hard for Frances they decided not to, thinking it may be uncomfortable to see her portraying scenes surrounding Mickey's death. That's just a rumor but I could see it.
