Madonna made her first statement on Monday after being hospitalized last month and reportedly revived with Narcan. She thanked her fans on Instagram for their positive energy, prayers, and words of healing and encouragement, stating that she felt their love.
“My first thought when I woke up in the hospital was my children,” she said. “My second thought was that I did not want to disappoint 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 stated that her main goal was to recover and return to touring.
“The current plan is to reschedule the North American leg of the tour and to begin in October in Europe,” she said. “I couldn’t be more grateful for your care and support.”
Last month, the singer known as the “Material Girl” was discovered unresponsive and taken to the hospital due to a severe bacterial infection, as reported by her manager, Guy O’Seary. However, a recent article on RadarOnline suggests that the infection may have been even more serious than O’Seary had initially stated.
The performer was injected with Narcan when she was found unconscious. Although Narcan is typically administered for narcotics overdoses, in Madonna’s case, it was apparently used to counter septic shock caused by a severe infection.
According to sources, there is no evidence to suggest that the singer exhibited any indications of drug misuse or overdose. Moreover, her spokespeople have refrained from making any comments on the matter. Apparently, the singer has been discharged from the hospital, as stated by her old acquaintance Rosie O’Donnell. Although, she is still experiencing the aftermaths of the illness, she is said to be recuperating.
“She is recovering at home — she is very strong in general,” O’Donnell said of her “A League of Their Own” co-star.
