#13 unless OP can come up with a legit reason for being fired that is illegal, such as discrimination or retaliation, then the best they can do is file for unemployment (unless they're part of a union, and then they can file a grievance). They can sue if they want, but if they were only fired for missing work, regardless of reason, chances are very good that they will lose.

Some companies have policies in place that prevent wrongful termination. So depending on her contract to work for the company, she could have a case against them. Some companies require a point system and others do a 'strike' system. At my job you have to have corrective action brought against you three times and there has to be evidence that your manager tried to coach you on your performance errors. THEN they can fire you.
So OP I'd look in to that, also as a manager I don't see ANY boss just firing your because you were sick. I see them firing you because you have a history of poor work ethic, like calling out frequently or no call no shows or similar behaviors.
The money and time it costs to train someone new is not worth the satisfaction of firing a sometimes below average employee. You have to be actively trying to lose your job to get fired in most cases.

I agree with #6. Smells like wrongful termination. Employers cannot fire someone just because you are sick, there are laws against that. On the other side I hope that your doctor can give you something different that does not have such effects. "Be well"
