Earlier this week, Kelly Stafford, the wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, revealed she suffered a setback in her recovery.

The wife of the star NFL quarterback underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor discovered earlier this month.

Unfortunately, she suffered a setback and revealed that she had to be taken to the emergency room a few days ago.

After spending two days in the hospital, Stafford took to Instagram with a more positive message.

She's been released from the hospital and even spent time with family for a few hours on Friday.

"I’m home. I’m home and I got to spend a few hours with my little humans. It filled my heart so much. I can’t even describe it. I wish they could stay, but I know I’m not ready for all of it," Stafford said.

She revealed the recovery process has been tough.

"When they took out the tumor, they also wiped out the entire balance system on my right side. I wish I could explain it, but I think it’s something you have to experience. I can’t turn my head right without feeling college drunk.. I’m talking end of the night, cant put one foot in front of the other, knowing you’ll be sleeping on the bathroom floor, college drunk." 

Our thoughts remain with Kelly, Matt and the rest of their family as she continues her recovery.
