The lead singer of Christian band Third Day has taken to social media to thank fans for their prayers for his wife, Aimee.

Mac Powell updated followers just after Thanksgiving last year to ask for prayers after his wife, Aimee, was taken to hospital suffering with a brain aneurysm.

Aimee Powell was admitted to hospital over the Thanksgiving weekend after complaining of a serious headache. The singer called an ambulance and she was hospitalized for some time.  

“So many have asked for an update,” he updated his fans just this week. “Here ya go:

“Today marks six weeks since my wife Aimee woke up having a brain aneurysm which led to a hemorrhagic stroke. She spent 14 days in the hospital. Aimee is doing great and we are so blessed that she was home for Christmas. We enjoyed the holidays with our children, family, and friends. What a great time to reflect on the miracle that God performed in Aimee! Headaches have been a new normal for her but she is continuing to heal and feel better each day. We will never be able to express our thanks and gratitude for all your prayers and love.

“We know that Aimee is here because of God, His plan for her life, and because of the prayers of the Saints all around the world! She’s been able to slowly get back to her normal mama routines like visiting colleges, seeing plays and basketball games, and getting in some snuggle time. Aimee is so incredibly grateful to be here with all of us. We go to a follow-up doctor visit on Tuesday. We hope and expect to get a great report. Thank you again for your continued prayers. To God be the glory!”

Hillsong worship leader Chelsea Taylor, who is based in Australia, was also rushed to hospital with a brain aneurysm. She miraculously recovered after Christians united in prayer.

At the time, Mac stated, “Aimee is in a lot of pain in her head. They have given her meds for it but nothing will completely help. They say the pain is going to be there. Eventually as the blood from the rupture leaves her brain it will work it’s way down to the neck and then her back. She’s getting a lot of rest- unfortunately, it’s usually only about 10 minutes of uninterrupted time with all the doctor and nurse visits and the alarms and beeps from the monitors.”
