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
On Monday, Kelly posted a new message, which as a parent, is very hard to imagine.
“Sitting in this dark room in pain, but trying to hold off on meds because I want to see my kids,” Stafford said in an Instagram post. “I want to be coherent and in the moment. Tomorrow, it’ll have been a whole week that I haven’t seen them and my heart aches. Balancing, in general, is incredibly hard right now … balancing kids and brain surgery is nearly impossible.”
We continue to keep Kelly Stafford in our thoughts and prayers, especially during this difficult time.
