(WXYZ) — Kelly Stafford, the wife of Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford, said she is back home after returning to the hospital following brain surgery to remove a tumor last week.

Kelly originally returned home after the surgery on Easter Sunday, but said she went back in the hospital on Wednesday because of pain issues.

In her latest post on Instagram, Kelly said she got to spend some time with her kids and "it filled my heart so much."

Earlier this month, Kelly announced that she would be having surgery to remove a tumor," Rock added. "She had the surgery last week and was released on Easter Sunday.

According to the post, she began to notice things were different within the last year, and would get dizzy or off balance.

"Things that I had been doing my entire life were now, all of a sudden, difficult," the post reads.

She said she then kept getting vertigo after January and they went to the ER, but all signs were that she was fine.

Eventually, after several vertigo spells, the Lions' team doctor suggest she get an MRI of the brain to rule everything major out.

"A few days later we were hit with the results, she wrote. "I had a tumor sitting on some of my cranial nerves. The medical term they used was an acoustic neuroma or vestibular schwannoma All I heard was brain tumor & that they had to do surgery to take it out.. so that is what we are going to do & we believe we found the best doctor to do it. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t completely terrified of brain surgery."
