So many have asked for an update. 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!
Aimee was admitted to the hospital on Nov. 30 after complaining of a terrible headache.
After a CT scan was performed, doctors discovered bleeding on her brain.
Powell said Aimee underwent a procedure and doctors “were able to put in 2 coils which will keep the aneurysm from bleeding and possibly rupturing.”
