It hasn't been an easy off-season for Kelly Stafford, wife of Detroit Lions' quarterback. She's recovering from brain surgery in April for a tumor, and it's not easy.
She has suffered from horrible headaches, partial hearing loss and balance problems, according to Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press.
On Instagram this week, she wrote that she's glad the off-season, obviously a painful chapter in her life, is coming to an end:
It’s hard to put into words this offseason. The hardest one we have ever had for obvious reasons, both healing from so much. I’ve never been happier to say goodbye to an off-season. It’s usually a sad moment watching Matthew pull away.. knowing there is no more family breakfasts, no more beer chugs, no more weekend dates..for 6-7 months.. but this time it was different. I was grateful to be here and feeling so ready to move on and leave this offseason in the past.. only taking with us the lessons and strength we gained from it. We grew as individuals, as a couple, and as parents going through what we went through so I wouldn’t change it for the world.. but I know I speak for both of us when I say we are very ready for football. So here is to season 11.. Lets fucking get it! #staffordstrong #golions
Matthew Stafford praised his wife, according to the Freep.
"Kelly was a stud, she was a trouper and is continuing to get better and better. It definitely puts things into perspective.”
