The decade's most triggering comedy
Singer Madonna released her first statement on Monday following her hospitalization last month after reportedly being revived with Narcan.
Madonna thanked fans on Instagram for their “positive energy, [p]rayers and words of healing and encouragement,” saying 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 said that her focus was now on getting better so she could get back out on tour.
“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.”
The “Material Girl” singer was found unresponsive late last month and was rushed to the hospital, suffering from what her longtime manager Guy O’Seary described as a “serious bacterial infection.”
However, a report from RadarOnline said that the infection may have been more serious than even he let on.
Sources reportedly told RadarOnline that the performer had to be revived with a Narcan injection when she was first discovered. While Narcan is most commonly used to treat narcotics overdoses, in Madonna’s case, it was believed to have been used for an entirely different reason: to reverse septic shock as a result of severe infection.
The sources did not indicate that the singer showed any signs of drug abuse or overdose, and her representatives have thus far declined to comment.
She has been released from the hospital, however, according to longtime friend Rosie O’Donnell — and while she is still suffering the effects of the infection, she is on the road to recovery.
“She is recovering at home — she is very strong in general,” O’Donnell said of her “A League of Their Own” co-star.
