Alexa Ray Joel is on the mend.

The 23 year-old musician, who left St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan's Greenwich Village Sunday, is "feeling much better," her rep tells Usmagazine.com. "She is with her family and looking forward to getting back on track."

Joel herself expressed her gratitude in a statement, "I want to thank everyone for their outpouring of love and support."

The only child of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley dialed 911 Saturday after popping a handful of homeopathic pills. The New York Post reported that Alexa was distraught over the end of a recent relationship, and swallowed eight tablets of Traumeel, an herbal alternative to ibuprofen. The pills were incapable of killing her, but the panicked singer reportedly called the hospital for help.

The singer will be staying with her father as she recuperates.
