Buffalo Bills great and Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, who has battled head and neck cancer in recent years, had his gallbladder removed.
His daughter, Erin Kelly-Bean, wrote on her Instagram account Friday night about her father and noted that her mother, Jill, has been in the hospital since Wednesday battling pneumonia.
“These two… In sickness and in health… Truthfully I’m not sure where to even begin… My mom has been in the hospital since Wednesday battling horrible pneumonia,” Erin wrote. “And within 24 hours my dad was in the room next to her after having to get his gallbladder removed.
“Although I don’t understand… I’m choosing to trust God and cling to Him… the Healer!!!! Our family would love for you to surround us in prayer!!! Thank you! #KellyTough”
It is unclear what precipitated Kelly needing to have his gallbladder removed, according to the Buffalo News.
Kelly was at the Super Bowl in Minnesota last week making the rounds for radio and TV interviews as part of his ongoing effort to raise awareness and money for cancer patient organizations.
