Madonna penned a touching tribute to her children as she took a moment to “reflect” one month after her hospitalization for a bacterial infection.
“Love from family and friends is the best Medicine,” the singer, 64, wrote via Instagram Sunday, alongside a carousel of photos featuring her son David Banda and daughter Lourdes.
“As a Mother you can really get caught up In the needs Of your children and the seemingly endless giving,” she continued, adding that her kids “really showed up” for her amid her health scare.
“I saw a side to them I had never seen before. It made all the difference.”
The pop star has six children: Lourdes, 26, Rocco, 22, David, 17, Mercy, 17, and twins Stella and Estere, 10.
As Page Six exclusively reported, Madonna was rushed to a hospital in New York City in late June after being found unresponsive in her home.

She was intubated for at least one night before having the tube removed.
Following her hospitalization, David and Rocco were both photographed visiting their mom’s Upper East Side apartment amid her recovery.
We were told that Lourdes was also by her mother’s side throughout the medical emergency.
A source previously told Page Six that Madonna had been “strenuously rehearsing” for weeks for her Celebration Tour prior to her hospitalization.
“She had been putting in 12-hour days,” a source close to production told us.
The tour, which was originally scheduled to begin July 15, will now kick off in Europe in October.
Sources told Page Six that the Queen of Pop wanted to avoid postponing her North American tour dates, which will be rescheduled.
“Madonna told everyone she wants to do the whole thing [soon] — but her management team and her insurance company kicked back. There was a bit of a battle raging,” an insider told us.
“While she has some rehearsing still to do, she has been working at it for months and knows exactly what needs to be done. She is just eager to get out there — as eager as her fans are to see her.”
In Sunday’s Instagram post, Madonna also thanked her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, for gifting her a Polaroid “taken by Andy Warhol of Keith Haring wearing a jacket with Michael Jackson’s face painted on it.”
The Grammy winner described the present as a “perfect triangle of Brilliance.”
“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,” she wrote.
