In a recent Video Posted by the Texans, Metchie explained that after OTAs, he began suffering from fatigue, headaches, migraines, and nausea.

But despite the challenges he’s faced, Metchie seems to have approached the situation with a glass half full, saying that “life always deals you a card. It’s all about how you react to it and how you deal with it.”

Metchie explained that, in his eyes, “it’s a blessing to be a blessing.”

“I think keeping that in mind is always a great thing and a great way to keep the spirits up and keep you going just because you know you’re in any situation, how down or up you are, that it’s always a blessing to be able to be a blessing to someone else.”

That attitude to life is illustrated by footage released by the Texans, which shows Metchie surprising his “hospital family” with a visit to Houston’s NRG Stadium to thank them.

Metchie took everyone around the stadium, signed merchandise, took photos with them and explained his pre-game routine.

That latter moment was shared with a young woman named Kaylyn, with whom Metchie said he “became instant friends” with the two playing cards and hanging out on a daily basis.

Metchie said, “Those relationships were really cool because I got to hang out with them and hear their perspective, and just spending time with them gave me more than I could give to them.

“And Kay (Kaylyn) is such a smart person, which is amazing because she’s been through so many tough things, but she still manages to be the happiest person in the room.”

Described as “down to earth” by Jessica, a nurse who was in attendance, she explained that Metchie “was willing to talk about his struggles, but he was also willing to talk about his life.”

Fellow sister Cindy said Metchie “accepted” his situation, saying, “He knows he’s going through this and what he said to me, he said, ‘I’m going to come out of this stronger than ever,’ and I couldn’t do it anymore agree.”

A defiant Metchie explained that when he heard his diagnosis, he knew in his eyes that “God had a plan for me and I would be fine.”
