“A year ago today, I had just come home from the hospital after surviving a life threatening illness, I could barely stand in my backyard holding one sparkler,” Madonna wrote alongside a series of photos of herself with various friends enjoying 4th of July festivities. “I made a miraculous recovery and had an amazing year. Thank you God. Life is beautiful!”

In March, the “Like a Virginl” singer recalled the “near-death experience” at her sold-out Los Angeles show, and told fans that her first word coming out of an induced coma after four days was “No,” according to People.

“I’m pretty sure that was God saying to me, ‘Do you want to come? Want to come up with me? No,’ Madonna said.

During the concert, she gave a shoutout to her doctor who was in the audience.

“I would call in every other day and ask [my doctor] why I didn’t have any energy, when was my energy going to come back? When was I going to feel like myself again? When can I go on tour again?” she said.

“All he would say is, ‘Go outside in the sun’ … It was so hard for me to walk from my house to the backyard and sit in the sun. I know that sounds insane, but it was difficult.”

Ultimately, her health scare forced Madonna to slow down and listen to her body. 

“It’s a strange thing to finally not feel like I was in control, and that was my lesson: to let go,” she said.
