A week that started with awful news has concluded in the most positive manner possible for Jamie Lynn Spears.
The sister of Britney has confirmed to social media followers that her eight-year old daughter, Maddie Aldridge, has been released from the hospital.
And it looks like she was released in grand fashion.
The little girl, of course, was involved in a very scary accident last Sunday.
While driving around in a child's ATV on her family's property in Louisiana, Maddie swerved to avoid a drainage ditch.
As a result, the vehicle flipped over and landed face-down in a pond.
Jamie Lynn and husband Jamie Watson were watching their daughter at the time and raced over to rescue her. But they were unable to unfasten her seatbelt.
Within minutes, paramedics were on the scene.
They transported the unconscious little one to a nearby hospital, where Maddie was placed in serious condition and members of her family asked fans to pray.
But that was then... and Jamie Lynn has so great news for everyone now:
Maddie was released from hospital on Friday morning, getting a fancy ride home on a helicopter, no less.
Watson shared the cute and inspiring photograph above today on Instagram.
It features Jamie Lynn standing outside the helicopter, while a smiling Maddie rides shotgun.
"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," he wrote as a caption, adding:
"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."
On Tuesday, a Spears family representative released a statement saying Maddie was "awake and talking."
"Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she was not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident," the statement read.
Aunt Britney Spears then said on Wednesday the little girl was "making progress," adding:
"Thank you all for sending thoughts and prayers our way. Let's all keep praying."
We're so glad that Maddie is back home, resting comfortably and on the mend.
It may be a little while until she's her old self again, physically and mentally, but the situation looked pretty dire just a few days ago.
We'll continue to monitor this situation and we'll continue to send our thoughts and prayers in the direction of the Spears family.
