Detroit Lions quarterback Matt Stafford’s wife Kelly, who had a 12-hour brain surgery over the weekend, was taken to the emergency room this morning. She posted an update on Wednesday afternoon revealing that she had made the trip to the hospital after complications arose coming off of steroids.
Kelly appears to be doing a lot better after being put back on steroids and being able to take her pain medication again. She hopes to leave the hospital on Thursday morning.
A little update:
I thought I could do it. They told me tapering off the steroids was going to be very difficult. The first picture was yesterday when I was on what I thought was my last day of steroids. I thought I could power through the pain and massive headaches that were challenging me throughout the day. I figured i could pull my strength from one of the strongest people I know, matthew. I told myself the pain would succumb to me, I wouldn’t succumb to it.
I was so wrong. The pain got so far ahead of me I couldn’t keep anything down, including meds. I ended up in the ER very early this morning, back on steroids and pain medication. At first, I felt like I had failed, like I couldn’t handle it.. but what I really failed at was listening to my own body. A lesson I feel like I am going to have to keep reminding myself of.
Thank you again for everything. I just wanted to give a little update. They will keep me here overnight just to monitor in hopes of going home in the morning.
