We all need to take time for a little "me time." 🙂

Last year, Britney’s father, Jamie Spears had been rushed to the hospital due to a ruptured colon.  Jamie was then in hospital for 28 days, with nurses, doctors and his family members right by his side.  Weeks later, Britney announced that she was taking an ‘indefinite work hiatus.’  Not only would she be postponing her new studio album but, that meant she would be putting her new Las Vegas show (Britney: Domination) on hold as well.
Britney then posted a throwback photo on Instagram, dedicated to her father.  Britney writes, “I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say. I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart. However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make. A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand.  I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.”

“Jamie is getting stronger everyday and is doing much better,” a source explained to Entertainment Tonight.  The source also revealed, “Britney loves her career and her fans, so the decision to step away from her career wasn’t easy, but she just wanted to be there for her dad, as he’s always been there for her.  She feels she owes him her life because he was there for her during her darkest hours. She is doing really well despite the circumstances and definitely plans to return to performing once she knows her father is in the clear. He still has a lot of recovering to do but really is doing much better.”
