Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matt Stafford, announced a couple of weeks ago that she had a brain tumor that required surgery. On Sunday, she sent out a thank you message on Instagram following a 12 hour surgery on her brain.
Kelly revealed she is back home and learning her new normal:
This Easter is the beginning of a new life for me. I wanna take a second to thank all of you for all the prayers. They have worked. I know they have. When they opened me up, I had an abnormal vein.. maybe abnormal for other neurosurgeons, but not the one We chose. He had seen it before and written a paper on it. That’s truly God’s work. The prayers for my family, I’m beyond thankful for. A six hour surgery went to 12 hours and although they were anxious and scared, your prayers got them through. Thank you. Thank you so much. Now I am home and learning my new norm. It’ll take some time, but I really just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all your support, thoughts and prayers. It means more than y’all will ever know. #cupscrew
