Madonna shares reflections on one month of recovery post-hospitalization.

Madonna, the 64-year-old pop music icon, expressed her gratitude to her children for their support during her health scare, which led to the cancellation of her world tour. 

After a month since her hospitalization in June, she shared a touching post on her social media account, along with three photos, reflecting on the past few weeks.

One of the snapshots captured Madonna with her firstborn child, Lourdes Leon, 26, who flashed a peace sign while posing with her beloved mother. 

In the caption, Madonna conveyed the importance of love from family and friends as the best form of medicine during challenging times.

"Love from family and friends is the best Medicine. One month out of the hospital and I can reflect,"

Another image showcased the subversive music artist hugging her 17-year-old son, David, a moment that undoubtedly reflects the strong bond they share.

The 64-year-old singer also acknowledged the love and support she received from her friends, who played a crucial role in her healing journey. 

Madonna shared a photo of herself holding a framed Polaroid taken by Andy Warhol of Keith Haring, wearing a jacket adorned with Michael Jackson's painted face. 

She described the trio as a "perfect triangle of Brilliance," acknowledging the impact these influential artists had on her life.

Touched by the gift, she was overwhelmed with emotion, realizing the significance of being alive and cherishing the memories of those who have passed. 

She expressed her gratitude to her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, for the thoughtful present.

The outpouring of support from friends and fans was evident in the comments, with actress Rosanna Arquette expressing her love and happiness for Madonna's safety and the support she received from her children.
