Former lead singer of Grammy-winning, multi-platinum selling group Third Day, Mac Powell has informed fans via social media that his wife Aimee who has been hospitalized with a brain bleed. Later, Aimee underwent surgery, which resulted in a lot of pain.
Mac writes: "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."
The pain almost means that Aimee finds it dfficult to rest and eat. "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.
She hasn't eaten in probably 36 hrs or so. Pray that her appetite starts to return so that she'll get the strength to start moving a little bit."
Later, Mac tells us that by God's grace his wife's situation has imporoved slightly. "However, once we were past midday things seemed to be getting a little better. We were able to have clearer and longer conversations today. I felt at one time today "There's my Aimee coming back to me!""
Nothing cheers the Powells up better than visits and prayers from family and friends. "Visits from some sweet friends and family helped and encouraged us- reminding us that there is NOTHING like close friends and family. We are OVERWHELMED by the encouragement and love we are receiving. We hear and feel your prayers. The calls, texts, and posts have made me tear up quite a few times. She will most likely be here for a couple weeks. The pain is not going away soon. But there is so much to be thankful for. Because of some caring helpers I was able to have a bit of a normal routine this afternoon in picking up BC from school,going to Emmanuel's basketball game, having dinner with the kids, and reading to and kissing the little ones goodnight."
"Unfortunately, Aimee is not able to do those normal things for a while. But we are confident that because of the great prayers and support that we are getting- we'll be able to get that snuggle time with Camie Love back on the couch soon!"
