” 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,” she wrote in the post, letting friend know she had a setback.

With family, friends and fans wishing her well and praying for her healing, Kelly was able to return home again. She shared the news on social media along with photos of her and her daughters and her and her husband Matthew.

“I’m home. I’m home and I got to spend a few hours with my little humans. It filled my heart so much. I can’t even describe it.
I wish they could stay, but I know I’m not ready for all of it,” Kelly wrote.

She went on to say, When they took out the tumor, they also wiped out the entire balance system on my right side. I wish I could explain it, but I think it’s something you have to experience. I can’t turn my head right without feeling college drunk.. I’m talking end of the night, cant put one foot in front of the other, knowing you’ll be sleeping on the bathroom floor, college drunk. I have to rework my brain to know that it can only rely on my left side, which will take time, a good amount of time. And when there are two toddlers running below your feet while you are trying to relearn basic things like walking.. it makes it seem like there are a million more moving parts to it.. maybe because there are.”

Kelly added that it’s been a difficult road to go through the recovery after being so active and running around after three little ones.

“It’s tough to go from a very active woman to having to relearn the basics of being an athlete, but these little girls give me so much strength. I want to be able to teach them every sport I learned and the day they beat me (I’m sure it’ll come fast) .. I’ll humble them by reminding them I’m only working with one side of my brain 😜 I miss them. I miss them so much, but I’m so grateful I got that time today and now I have my inspiration to keep on pushing!”

We wish Kelly the best with as she continues on to her road to recovery.
