Madonna reflects on ‘miraculous recovery’ one year after hospitalization

Madonna is reflecting on her “miraculous recovery” one year after being discharged from the hospital over a “life threatening” infection.

“A year ago today, I had just come home from the hospital after surviving a life threatening illness, I could barely stand in my backyard holding one sparkler,” she wrote on Instagram Friday alongside photos that showed her Fourth of July celebrations the day prior.

“I made a miraculous recovery and had an amazing year. Thank you God. Life is beautiful! ♥️🧨🔥,” she concluded.

The “Vogue” hitmaker, 65, included several snapshots that showed her cuddling up to a mystery man and holding onto his arm as they walked. In one particularly sexy photo, he grabbed her chest.

Madonna debuted the PDA-filled pictures almost two months after she and Josh Popper reportedly split.

In July 2023, the iconic singer was released from the ICU after being found unconscious in her New York City home. It was later revealed she had gone into septic shock and had to be revived with Narcan when her “lifeless body” was discovered.

Her manager confirmed at the time she fell ill with a “serious bacterial infection.”

After coming home, Madonna broke her silence and thanked her fans for their “positive energy, Prayers and words of healing and encouragement.”

“I have felt your love. I’m on the road to recovery and incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life,” she said in an Instagram post on July 10.

Upon waking in the hospital, the Grammy winner thought about her six children and her upcoming “Celebration” tour.

“I did not want to disappointment anyone who bought tickets for my tour. I also didn’t want to let down the people who worked tirelessly with me over the last few months to create my show. I hate to disappoint anyone,” she explained.

Madonna’s sudden illness forced her to postpone the North American dates of her world tour, which was originally scheduled to kick off on July 15, 2023, in Vancouver, Canada.

She reportedly fought her management team and insurance company to keep the original tour dates but was ultimately forced to push them back due to her health.

She kicked off her “Celebration” tour — which was meant to celebrate her 40 years in the music industry — at London’s O2 arena in October 2023.

Madonna played her last show in May in Brazil.

She is currently being sued by a fan who accused her of subjecting concertgoers to “pornography without warning.”
