Aimee Powell, the wife of Third Day frontman Mac Powell, remains hospitalized in Georgia after being rushed to the hospital with an intense headache that turned out to be an aneurysm.

Mac, whom many will know as Craig Morgan’s duet partner on the song “Hearts I Leave Behind,” from the album, A Whole Lot More to Me, broke the news less than a week ago on his social media pages, sharing a photo of his wife.

After Aimee was admitted into the hospital, doctors were able to do a procedure involving inserting coils that would possibly keep the aneurysm from rupturing, however, the pain remains severe and likely will for some time.

“So many have asked for an update on my wife Aimee,” Mac wrote. “Forgive me for not knowing all the right medical stuff. In her 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! This is a pic w her mama @GeGe hunt @macandaimee #pray4aimee.”

While the prognosis is good, Aimee will remain hospitalized for a couple of weeks, at least, as the recurring headaches give her good days and not-so-good days which could require additional treatment or attention from the nursing staff.

“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.”

He continued, “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!”
