It’s been a long, harrowing week for Jamie Lynn Spears and her family, but it looks like the worst may be behind them. Spears’ 8-year-old daughter Maddie, who was hospitalized this week after an ATV accident, has left the hospital in high spirits.
Spears’ husband, Jamie Watson, shared a photo of his family departing the hospital on Instagram. Maddie is grinning from ear to ear.
“Thanks to the amazing first responders, and medical teams at University and Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, LA, we are headed home with our baby girl as she continues to recover,” Watson captioned the photo. “Above all else we are so thankful for each and every prayer, because we know that is what truly made the difference. Thank you again to everyone. We are truly blessed.”
Jamie Lynn echoed her husband’s sentiments in a tweet Friday.
Maddie has been hospitalized since Sunday after a serious ATV accident. According to a police report obtained by People, Maddie was riding an ATV in view of her mother and stepfather when she overcorrected on a turn, flipping the vehicle into a pond. The 8-year-old was listed in critical, but stable condition before finally regaining consciousness Tuesday. According to a statement from the hospital where she was treated, Maddie has not suffered “any neurological consequences from the accident.”
Britney Spears shared news of her niece’s recovery on Twitter, where she thanked her followers for their prayers and support.
This is just the good news we needed to hear today. Wishing the Spears family the best as Maddie continues to recover!
