Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford’s wife, Kelly Stafford, is back in the hospital after recently undergoing brain surgery.

Earlier this month, Kelly revealed that she had been diagnosed with a benign brain tumor called an acoustic neuroma. She then shared with fans that she had to undergo brain surgery. Following the surgery, Kelly revealed that the six hour surgery went to 12 hours but that the prayers she received, worked.

“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,” Kelly wrote.

Now, the mother of three is sharing an update that has her back in the hospital dealing with “the pain and massive headaches.”

“A little update:  I thought I could do it. They told me tapering off the steroids was going to be very difficult,” Kelly shared. “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. ”

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.
