Luckily, her husband Carey Hart was kind enough to recommend his doctor, who offered to help out. Applauding her dad's strength and positive attitude, the "So What" crooner wrote:

"But here he is, my dad, scared and in pain sitting with the love of his life, our Grace, and what's he doing???? Smiling, cracking jokes. Making everyone else feel better.."

She ended the post with a post-surgery update as she assured her followers that Jim was doing great as he was "back to his old tricks" of having fun, before writing, "oh, Dad. How amazing it is to watch you whistle through hell." Fans flooded the comments section with prayers and well wishes for her dad with whom she shares a tight bond.

While the internet was friendly to P!nk this time, it's not always the case, especially when she shares photos or clips of her two kids, 9-year-old Willow and 3-year-old Jameson. USA Today reports that the Grammy Winner has often had to fight off trolls from time to time and eventually turned off her comments.

One such time was when she took her kids to the zoo in July last year and a fan accused her of teaching jer kids about captivity. As expected, the mother-of-two wasted no time in clapping back as she wrote:

"I believe in capturing a child's interest and love for an animal before teaching them about things like captivity. But thank you, the world needed your wisdom today."

However, the haters haven't stopped P!nk from sharing updates of her bundles of joy. People Magazine reported that she recently uploaded a cute clip of her kids disrupting one of her virtual workout sessions with their love and undiluted joy!
