Madonna Thanks Her Kids for Getting Her Through Crisis: “I saw a side to them I had never seen before. It made all the difference”


Madonna is thanking her kids on line for getting through her medical crisis. She writes: “I saw a side to them I had never seen before. It made all the difference.”

Madonna has six kids: Rocco and Lourdes, plus David Banda and Mercy James, whom she adopted first, then twin girls who she also adopted.

The 80s pop star was hospitalized at the end of June for “a bacterial infection.” The word was she was found “unresponsive” and was rushed to the ICU. A month later, she seems like she’s in good shape and getting ready for her tour to begin in October.

She writes:

“Love from family and friends is the best Medicine. One month out of the hospital and I can reflect.
As a Mother you can really get caught up In the needs Of your children and the seemingly endless giving……….. 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.
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.
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!
And Thank you to all my angels who protected me and let me Stay to finish doing my work!”
