WASHINGTON: Selena Gomez's mother Mandy Teefey, in an emotional post, has recalled how she felt 'helpless' and 'scared' when her daughter had to undergo a kidney transplant.

Teefey recently shared a photo of Gomez with best friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa in the hospital, the same picture that the 25-year-old singer shared when she announced the news of her kidney transplant.

"This picture is one of the most breathtaking images that will live with me forever," Teefey wrote along with the Instagram post.

"For all those moments of not knowing if we were going up or going down, I can always come back to this picture and know we can always make it back up."

"As a mother I was helpless, scared and all I could do was pray for both of them, Francia's beautiful family," the 41-year-old continued, before joking, "I am pretty sure I am banned from that hospital. Mama Bear was in high gear."

Teefey went on to say that while her daughter gained a kidney, she herself gained another daughter in Raisa. She then made sure to thank everyone for their support.

"We survived from all the love, prayers and God," she wrote.

Gomez's need for a new kidney was due to her ongoing struggle against chronic autoimmune disease Lupus.
