Madonna has been flooded with well-wishes after she shared her first pictures on Instagram since being rushed into intensive care.
The singer, 64, had to spend seven days in the intensive care unit last month after developing what her manager, Guy Oseary, described as a 'serious bacterial infection' just weeks before she was set to kick off her Celebration Tour.
Oseary assured everyone at the time that Madonna's health was 'improving', but that all of her commitments would be postponed as a result of the illness.
Madonna was able to get back to her home in New York at the end of June, and a few days later she shared a statement to thank those who had sent her 'positive energy, prayers and words of healing and encouragement'.
"I have felt your love. I’m on the road to recovery and incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life," she continued.
"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."
Madonna said in her statement that she was focusing on 'getting stronger' and assured she would be 'back' as soon as she can, but went quiet again for a week after sharing the post.
Yesterday, the singer made a return to Instagram with new pictures after leaving hospital, with one posted to her feed showing her hugging a huge pink rose bush.
Alongside the image, she shared a quote which read: "A single rose can be my garden. A single friend my world."
"Thank You," Madonna added alongside the quote.
Around the same time as she shared the post, Madonna also added a couple of pictures to her Instagram Story which showed her cradling a soft purple stuffed toy.
Fans celebrated Madonna's return to Instagram with kind comments for the singer, with one writing: "Glad you are feeling better. sending you love."
Another added: "Very happy to see you’re taking care of yourself first."
A third wrote: "We missed you so much, so glad you're back! We Love you, M."
Madonna's Celebration Tour was set to kick off in North America, but will now instead start in Europe in October. The North America dates are set to be rescheduled when Madonna is fully back on her feet.
