Lions QB Matthew Stafford is back with team after wife’s surgery

Thankfully, we have some good news on this front. Everything seems to be going well in the recovery of Kelly Stafford, the wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Back on April 3rd, we heard that she had been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

A couple of days ago, we heard that she had returned home after her surgery. The surgery was initially supposed to take six hours, but it ended up taking 12 because doctors discovered an abnormal vein during it. That being said, the procedure was thankfully declared a success.

Now that she’s on the road to recovery, Stafford has “returned to voluntary offseason workouts in Detroit,” per Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.com.

Kelly posted a photo to her Instagram providing an update on the procedure.

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

It’s a scary situation all around, and obviously football takes a back seat in times like these. Stafford returning to the Lions’ offseason program can only be taken as a sign that everything is going well with the recovery, which is great news.. Here’s to hoping the next update we hear is another positive one.
