Aside from making a few appearances with her boyfriend The Weeknd and releasing a some hit singles, for the most part, Selena Gomez has stayed out of the spotlight this summer.

On Thursday morning, Selena Gomez shared a heartfelt Instagram post, where she revealed that she recently had a kidney transplant, and has been taking some much needed time to recover. In the post, she thanks her family, her team of doctors, and her friend, Francia Raisa for donating her kidney. Take a look at the Instagram post below.

Selena writes, “I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.”

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
