Adele, 42, today told how there have been “ups and downs this week” as she shared photos from her hospital bed.
The star penned: “Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone. You’ve been absolutely incredible! So kind, sending good wishes and looking after my family.
“You are the greatest! You’ve kept me going. I’ve had my ups and downs this week but today I really feel like I’m starting to turn a corner and hopefully I’ll be well enough to go home soon. I’m so sorry I’ve not been in here much.
“I’ve not really been on my phone but my family have been telling me how wonderful everyone has been. You’ve brought them so much comfort. From the bottom of my heart thank you.”
Adele continued by thanking the staff at the London hospital and said her fellow patients had helped to keep her spirits up.
She said: “God bless the NHS. I cannot believe how hard they work and how much they care, they’re angels on earth. They’re next level – so special. 💙
“Sending you so much love if you’re going through a tough time at the moment. Especially if you’re living with cancer.”
“There’s a few ladies on my ward who are inspiring me everyday. They’re warriors – stopped me feeling sorry for myself many a time! Also reminding me that I’m not alone in this and that it could be much worse for me.”
The I'm A Celeb star concluded her post on a positive note, saying how grateful she is to still be here and to enjoy the little things in life.
She said: “Thank you once again to everyone getting me through. Including the BT Tower! 🥰
“I always stand for a little bit and watch it before my radio shows in the morning. I love watching London wake up and the sun rising over it. I always look out for the message of the day too.
“I never realised that one day I’d be watching the sun from the other side. Seeing ‘Good morning London’ everyday has made me so grateful and been my reminder that everything is going to be ok. Had my first solid breakfast watching the day begin this morning 😍🥣☕️
“Have a great week everyone and please go and see someone if you’re worried about anything that’s not normal for you. Early detection saves lives. I don’t want this little horror taking any more of us.”
Adele, who took part in the 2019 series of I'm A Celebrity, first rose to fame in 2002 as a contestant on Big Brother 3, where she finished in seventh place.
She joined the BBC's Radio 1 Xtra team in 2012 before moving to Radio 1 in 2015.
