“God is working overtime you hear me! My kidneys were doing terrible…doctors came in this AM and said they are improving so much,” she wrote alongside the selfie.

The previous day, Broadus shared another post and thanked her Instagram followers for the “love and support” as she recovered.

"Again I'm human and I go through s--- like everybody else which is why I'm so open about my life because I know I feel alone," she wrote. "But we are never alone, someone is always going through damn near the same. Still here hoping to be home soon."

Broadus first revealed on Thursday that she suffered a stroke and was hospitalized.

“I had a severe stroke this a.m. I started breaking down crying when they told me,” she announced on her Instagram Story at the time. “Like I’m only 24, what did I do in my past to deserve all of this.”

​​Although Broadus didn’t provide any details on what led to her stroke or her recovery, the singer has had a difficult health journey for years after being diagnosed with lupus at age 6.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakes healthy tissues as foreign invaders and attacks them rather than targeting the bad bacteria and viruses. It causes inflammation that can affect the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. There is currently no cure for the disease.

Because lupus affects multiple organs in the body, it can increase the risk for a stroke.

In September 2023, Broadus spoke to PEOPLE about her lupus battle and how her health has been since making some lifestyle changes.

“I've been good, better than I've ever been,” she said, revealing that she went “all natural” and recently took a more holistic approach to her health after a tough journey that included a 2021 suicide attempt.

“I stopped taking all of my medication like five months ago,” she shared. “I'm just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas. I started working out, drinking lots of water. So now I think my body's like, OK, this is the new program and she's getting used to it.”

Despite her progress, Broadus said she knows there are additional ways she can improve her health.

“It's continuously a learning process because there's so much more I could be doing,” she explained, noting that she still struggles with “eating terribly” and “not getting the proper rest.”

“If I can do a whole 360 change and just get healthy all around, I think I would be so good,” she said at the time. “But I tell people all the time, it’s a day-by-day process. Things are going to take time. Nothing is going to happen overnight.”
