Dianna De La Garza has spoken in an interview about her fears of whether or not her daughter, Demi Lovato, would "make it" after her overdose.
Talking to Newsmax TV, nearly two months after the incident, Dianna broke her silence over the shocking news.
Speaking about getting bombarded with text messages from loved-ones, Dianna said "We just didn't know for two days if she was going to make it or not,
"I just feel like the reason she's alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day when everybody found out what was happening." It wasn't until Dianna received a call from the 'Confident' singer's assistant that she learned what had happened to her daughter.
Before thanking the staff and doctors at Cedars-Sinai, Dianna told of how Dallas, Demi's sister, drove the family to the hospital, and "ran into the emergency room to be by [Demi's] side. "She just didn't look good at all. She was in a bad shape" said her mother.
Dianna went on to thank the show for letting her speak out and share her side of the story.
