Yahoo Sports Contributor. After enduring a painful setback in her recovery from surgery to remove a brain tumor, Kelly Stafford returned home again and gave more details on what she’s been going through the past few days.

Kelly Stafford , wife of Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford , is back in the hospital only several days after a 12-hour surgery to remove her brain tumor. In a lengthy Instagram post, Kelly , 29, detailed her struggles with pain since the procedure, and how it resulted in her return to the hospital.

Earlier Monday, ESPN printed Kelly's first-person account of her experience, detailing her symptoms — she was diagnosed with acoustic neuroma, a benign tumor — and mindset, after sharing her story on social media a few weeks before the April 17 surgery.

"I'll say this: Detroit and Michigan really showed up," she wrote Monday. "The Lions were incredible. They told Matthew to take all of the time and space he needed. And then, there were the fans. The amount of letters that poured into the facility — so many prayers, a lot of holy water — it was remarkable. Matthew joked that our house looked like a bootleg flower shop."

Kelly's scheduled six-hour surgery turned into 12 hours because doctors found an abnormal vein inside her head. She credited lead surgeon, Dr. Greg Thompson from the University of Michigan, for his patience during the surgery, stopping a few times when her audio waves went dead and resuming only when the waves returned.

Mark Zuckerberg Teases AI ‘Brain Chip’—But It Will Be Different Than Elon Musk’s

  Mark Zuckerberg Teases AI ‘Brain Chip’—But It Will Be Different Than Elon Musk’s If Silicon Valley were to put a team of tech bros together on a project to merge computers and people, the lineup wouldn’t be complete without car and rocket man Elon Musk and the Valley’s most dubious robot, Mark Zuckerberg. In all fairness, Musk has already proposed a plan to make an actual chip which is meant to be inserted into human brains. (It will be designed with taste and wireless cleanliness so you “have no wires poking out of your head,” as Musk assured.) Zuckerberg has said he’s interested in the idea of computer-human integration, too, but will approach it differently than Musk.

Kelly Stafford , the wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford , is recovering after a 12-hour brain surgery last week.

"His patience is what saved my hearing."

Her recovery was slow at first: She had to relearn how to walk and wasn't able to see her three girls, all under 3 years old, for two weeks after the surgery.

"Matthew was incredible during the whole process," Kelly wrote. "He was literally by my side at every step. I had exercises I needed to do — some of them were seemingly simple, like shaking my head left and right — and Matthew helped me through all of it."

Kelly has gotten back into her boxing classes — "my therapy outside of therapy" — but has only gone to one Lions game this season because the noise and constant action is exhausting for her.

"I'll probably look into hearing aids for safety reasons soon. I do hope to go to football games again, but I don't want to injure the ear we worked so hard to save.

AI can help doctors spot brain hemorrhages faster .
AI is already capable of discovering medical conditions with a high degree of accuracy. However, brain hemorrhages are particularly challenging -- false positives slow things down, while missing even a tiny hemorrhage could be deadly. The technology might be ready for it, however. UC Berkeley and UCSF researchers have created an algorithm that detected brain hemorrhages with accuracy better than two out of four radiologists in a test. The key was the algorithm's finely-detailed training data.The process relied on a convolutional neural network that pored over 4,396 CT scans.
