The mother of six, whose children range in age from 10 to 26, revealed her initial concerns upon waking up in the hospital. Her first thoughts were of her children and not wanting to disappoint her fans or the dedicated team working on her upcoming tour. She emphasized her dedication to her audience, saying, “I hate to disappoint anyone.”
While her focus remains on regaining her health and strength, Madonna reassured her fans that she plans to return to the stage as soon as possible. Although the North American leg of her Celebration tour will be rescheduled, she expressed optimism about resuming performances in Europe starting in October.
Madonna’s hospitalization had sent shockwaves through her devoted fanbase when her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, announced her serious bacterial infection and subsequent ICU stay. Although the exact nature of the infection remains undisclosed, experts have speculated that it could be sepsis—an overreaction of the immune system to a bacterial infection.
Following the announcement, sources confirmed that Madonna was recovering well at home, dispelling concerns about her condition. Close friends, including Rosie O’Donnell and Debi Mazar, provided further reassurance, praising her strength and resilience.
