Just over a week after the horrifying ATV accident that left her in a coma for two days, Jamie Lynn Spears has shared the first photo of her daughter Maddie on the road to recovery.
The 8-year-old visited her school on Tuesday to hand out Valentine’s Day presents to her classmates and her mother made sure to capture the adorable moment.
“Maddie isn’t quite ready to returns to school, but her doctors did clear her to bring in her Valentine’s Day treats to her class today,” Spears, 25, captioned the pic on Instagram.
“It made her so happy to see her friends, and be able to give them such cute treats,” she continued in the sweet post.
“It was a great moment for us after everything that has happened. We are so thankful to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the ones we love, and we don’t take a second of it for granted. Happy Valentine’s Day.”
According to a police report obtained by PEOPLE, Maddie was driving an off-road vehicle in view of Spears and her husband Jamie Watson on Feb. 5, when she accidently drove the vehicle into a pond on her parent’s property.
“The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before their eyes. Within seconds the child’s mother, stepfather and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail,” the report said.
“The child was trapped and secured by the seabelt and the ATV’s safety netting. Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing the child from the cold waters.”
Maddie was then airlifted to a hospital in New Orleans’s where she remained in a critical condition for several days. She was discharged on Feb. 10 after the hospital released a statement on behalf of a Spears family rep that revealed Maddie was, “breathing well and interacting with loved ones.”
Family members, including the young girl’s famous Aunty, Britney Spears have since thanked fans for their prayers and words of support during the tumultuous time.
