Adele may not be back to singing just yet, but she has taken up the next best thing: blogging.

The superstar British chanteuse took to her official site this week to give concerned fans an update on her status in the wake of her career time-out to undergo scary (for both her and the millions who enjoy her music) throat surgery.

So how's she doing?

"Thank you for all your positive thoughts and get well wishes," she wrote Monday. "I'm doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all.

"The operation was a success and I'm just chilling out now until I get the all clear from my doctors."

The 23-year-old underwent vocal cord laser microsurgery to remove a benign polyp and end the chronic throat hemorrhages she'd been enduring. She had the procedure at Massachusetts General Hospital last week and is expected to make a full recovery, albeit one that will keep her from performing at least through the end of the year.

Still, one thing that already seems to have made a full recovery: that cheeky sense of humor. And her humble gratitude.

"Thank you to everyone who voted for the awards I've won recently as well," she wrote. "Hugely appreciated. I best get back to practicing my mime show now. Take care, miss you all."

Safe to say the feeling's mutual. Here's to a speedy recovery.
