“This is my dear Dad this morning headed in for surgery,” she wrote on the caption. “He just finished his second round of chemo for prostate cancer, fell off a ladder and fractured his back, lost function in his legs until my battered and bruised husband shared his brilliant doctor.”

10 hours after the surgery, she shared that her dad was back to “his old tricks."

“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 wrote.

She often spoke highly of him and once paid a tribute to him on Father’s Day via social media, saying, “He has been my person all of my life. He has fought monsters in my closet, and monsters that posed as principals in school buildings, you name it. He has taken on the world for and with me, no questions asked."

Pink continued by stating, “He made me feel important. He made me think I was worth loving. He taught me how to do it all myself. And when no one else was there, he told me to love myself. I thank my stars for this man, that he was strong enough not only to fight his own monsters but mine too, now my kids. I love you daddy sir.”
