JUST IN: Kelly Stafford posts 3 a.m. Instagram message that will break your heart

On Wednesday afternoon, news broke that Kelly Stafford, who had just returned home this past weekend following brain surgery, was forced back into the ER after her pain began to get out of control.

From Kelly’s Instagram:

“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.”

At roughly 3:00 a.m. Thursday morning, Kelly, who was having trouble sleeping, took to Instagram again and posted a truly heartbreaking message.

Can’t sleep. Sitting here, listening to these hospital beeps, wide eyed… and I’m MISSING my people. I’ve seen them once since surgery and it was hard. 
I was so excited to see them, but the amount of energy it took to even just yell out their names with excitement, was too much energy. I can’t pick them up, they can’t climb on me, we can’t go on adventures, but what’s worse is I can’t be the mom I want to be for them right now.. Not physically, not mentally, not emotionally.. and I am really having a hard time trying to figure out how much to push myself right now to get back for them.. really to get back to myself, so I can get back to them. 
I thought this would be like every other surgery I had.. no idea why the hell I thought that. You have a couple tough days and then you turn the corner. Mind over matter..Well this is mind over mind and honestly I’m terrible at this.. so if you have any advice, please, please don’t hesitate to share. (Might wanna take advantage because when I’m back feeling good and you try to give me advice on something I don’t want advice on.. you might get a little slap back 😜)
Serious side note: my prayers are to anyone fighting something medical and out of their control right now. There are things far, far, far worse than I am going through and the people getting through their everyday life while battling through those things.. y’all are true heroes, all my prayers are with y’all. 
Gonna try and get some rest.
