Christian rock band Third Day‘s member, Mac Powell is asking prayers for his wife, Aimee, who suffered an aneurysm.

On Sunday, Dec. 1, the singer posted his wife’s photo on Instagram asking for prayers. His wife of 23 years, whom he shares five children with, was complaining of terrible headaches Saturday morning, Nov. 30. Powell wrote on Instagram that an ambulance rushed her to the hospital, where she was given a CT scan. Doctors found some bleeding in her brain which they “believe is an aneurysm.”

Later on Saturday, Powell posted a photo of Aimee in her hospital bed with her mom with the update: “In the procedure they were able to put in 2 coils which will keep the aneurysm from bleeding and possibly rupturing. Her head is hurting really bad. She’ll be kept for many days to be tested and monitored. Thankful for many friends, family, and prayers!”

On Sunday afternoon, Powell gave another update and continued asking for prayers:

“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 its way down to the neck and then her back,” Powell wrote. “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.”

These are the beautiful flowers I bought Aimee yesterday but didn’t get to take in her room 😩 We are overwhelmed and blown away by the love, support, and prayers that you all have sent our way. Keep praying! Here’s a quick update I wrote earlier: The update so far for today: 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. 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. All signs are good so far. There doesn’t seem to be any negative neurological signs yet for physical or mental deficiencies. Thanks for your love and prayers! @macandaimee #pray4aimee

The latest post showed their daughter, Camie Love, sleeping with her mother on her hospital bed and a positive update from Powell: “A little bit more moaning and groaning than the past couple of days. 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!”

Sometimes a picture CAN tell a thousand words. This sweet moment just happened tonight. Not sure who’s idea it was but I’m glad it happened. Our sweet @camielovep comes down every night to snuggle with me and Aimee on the couch and she wasn’t going to let a trip to the intensive care unit stop her tonight. Today’s update: we slept good through the night only to find that yesterday’s pain only intensified in Aimee’s head throughout much of the day. Yesterday was supposed to be the hardest day and Today said “Oh yeah! Check this out!” A little bit more moaning and groaning than the past couple of days. 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!” 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!
