Got very ill and missed 3 weeks of work (in the hospital) so I missed a lot of follow up calls, appointments, and had no prospecting. How should I explain to people why I missed their appointments?

Sorry you were/are sick, hope you feel better. Just tell them that you were in the hospital, no need to be strategic with it. Let them know it was a big deal so they'll cut you slack on the no show. Them just start working on building the momentum which may take a while. When my wife had our baby I was out for two weeks mad it killed two months for me. Good luck and feel better.

I hope you are doing much better. Didn't you have someone call and cancel appointments for you??
