The singer shared a heartwarming post about how her loved ones helped her recover.
In late July, Madonna sparked major concern when she was hospitalized due to a "serious bacterial infection." As a result, the 64-year-old singer was forced to postpone an upcoming work tour. In a post shared to his verified Instagram on Wednesday, Guy Oseary, Madonna's manager, explained that she "developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several day stay in the ICU," he wrote. "Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected." This week, Madonna addressed her health scare with fans in a lengthy social media post.

But when the chips were down my children really showed up for me. I saw a side to them I had never seen before. It made all the difference," she continued.
"So did the love and support from my friends. If you zoom into this Picture I am holding You will see A Polaroid taken by Andy Warhol of Keith Haring wearing a jacket with Michael Jackson's face painted on it. A perfect triangle of Brilliance. Artist who touched so many lives including my own," she wrote.
"I sobbed when I opened this gift because I realized how lucky I am to be alive. And how fortunate I am to have known these people and so many others who are also gone. Thank you @guyoseary for this gift!" she added. "And Thank you to all my angels who protected me and let me Stay to finish doing my work!"
