NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Demi Lovato's sister penned an emotional Instagram post Monday in honor of the singer's 26th birthday, acknowledging that she's grateful to have Lovato in her life following a recent drug overdose.

"Today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead i get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, Demi’s team and everyone across the world who offered their support,” Madison De La Garza wrote, alongside a photo of herself as a baby with Lovato at her side. 

today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead i get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, demi's team, and everyone across the world who offered their support - without all of these people i wouldn't have my big sister anymore. i've been thinking about how i wish that everyone could see the silly little things that she does, like how her nostrils move when she says certain words and when she brushes my hair behind my ear when i'm trying to sleep, because those are the things i'm thankful for today. they seem so small, but those little things make up my sister - not a singer, not a celebrity, and definitely not what she's been described as in the media - she's a daughter, a friend, and my big sister... and i am so, so thankful that i can tell her happy birthday. #happybirthdaydemi ❤️

De La Garza continued, "Without all of these people I wouldn’t have my big sister anymore. I’ve been thinking about how I wish that everyone could see the silly little things that she does, like how her nostrils move when she says certain words and when she brushes my hair behind my ear when I’m trying to sleep, because those are the things I’m thankful for today."

She added, "They seem so small, but those little things make up my sister. Not a singer, not a celebrity and definitely not what she’s been described as in the media. She’s a daughter, a friend and my big sister… and I am so, so thankful that I can tell her happy birthday. #happybirthdaydemi."

Lovato was rushed to hospital a few weeks ago after her assistant found her unconscious and administerred Narcan to her, which is used when someone overdoses.
