Pink is recovering from hip surgery, and says the healing process has been “brutal.”
“Hey world! This is what 9 hours of sleep and cuddles from my kiddos looks like 7 days post hip surgery!!” the singer, 42, captioned a selfie shared to Instagram on Wednesday.
Pink thanked Dr. Philippon and the team at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., for “taking such good care” of her on site.
“I am never not completely grateful. It was a brutal first week full of tears and pain med depression, ulcers from meds and constant fevers,” she explained.
“It is humbling for a very independent person like myself to be rendered physically unable and dependent, even if for a couple of months,” she continued. “I’m learning the gift of accepting help. My journey will be quick and intentional, and I will make a full recovery. For that I am so blessed.”
The “So What” singer also expressed gratitude for her husband, former freestyle motocross racer Carey Hart, for getting her through tough times.
“My @hartluck brought me through,” Pink shared. “He brought me coffee in the shower, lugged around my 100 pound CPM contraptions everywhere I went, dried my tears, cooked me oatmeal, kept track of my meds, got me my phone charger, plugged in my compression machines, took my temp, made the bed, and talked me off the ledge.”
The mom of two also gave a shoutout to fans who are facing similar hardships and “making magic out of the impossible.”
“Life always reminds you that most setbacks are actually just pauses and opportunities to recalibrate and count your blessings,” she explained. “I’m impressed by those that face real, hard challenges, and alchemize their situation into something magical, or meaningful.”
Pink and Hart tied the knot in January 2006 and share two kids: daughter Willow Sage, 10, and son Jameson Moon, 4.
