Third Day lead singer Mac Powell says people's "prayers and well wishes are being felt" as his wife, Aimee, begins to heal after a hospital emergency.
Powell posted the news on Saturday that he rushed his wife to the hospital when she began complaining about severe pain in her head. Doctors found bleeding in her brain and immediately began to operate.
Now, for the first time since her surgery, Powell says, Aimee is able to sit up and eat a few bits of food.
"Positive progress today," Powell wrote yesterday. "The morning started out better than yesterday. The pain had subsided a bit, but it's up and down.
"... We are thankful for friends that have helped take the little ones to and from school and for meals and provisions that people have brought. Keep praying- we're still not out of the woods. But it feels like we're taking a step towards the exit. #pray4aimee."
In his post, Powell included two photos of Aimee smiling. See the full post below:

Update on Aimee: Your prayers and well wishes are being felt! Positive progress today. The morning started out better than yesterday. The pain had subsided a bit but it's up and down. She was able to eat a few bites of banana for breakfast and soup that @gegehunt brought her for lunch. Her sister @wendecuts helped wash her hair and she was even able to stand up and walk a few steps to sit in the chair. We are thankful for friends that have helped take the little ones to and from school and for meals and provisions that people have brought. Keep praying- we're still not out of the woods. But it feels like we're taking a step towards the exit. #pray4aimee
Just a day earlier, Powell shared a touching photo of his daughter, Camie Love Powell, snuggling with her mom on the hospital bed.
"Sometimes a picture CAN tell a thousand words," Mac Powell wrote. "This sweet moment just happened tonight. Not sure whose 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."

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!
