Madonna indicated that her first thought after waking up in the hospital at the end of June was her children, but her second thought related to those who bought tickets to see her in concert.

"I did not want to [disappoint] anyone who bought tickets for my tour. 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."

Now, Madonna says she's focusing on her health and "getting stronger."

"I assure you, I'll be back with you as soon as I can! The current plan is to reschedule the North American leg of the tour and to begin in October in Europe. I couldn't be more grateful for your care and support. Love, M," Madonna concluded.

Madonna was hospitalized at the end of June due to a "serious bacterial infection," leading the 64-year-old to postpone her upcoming Celebration World Tour.
