“Thank you Lord! We are so incredibly grateful to all the doctors and nurses that have provided excellent care to Aimee. And we can never say thank you enough to our family, friends and brothers and sisters in Christ who have prayed, taken care of our children and blessed us with gift cards, food, flowers and cards,” he wrote.

The following Wednesday, Aimee’s birthday, the recovering wife and mother gave an update of her own, thanking God for his provision.

“God is so good! He has been with me through each step of this crazy time in my life,” Aimee wrote.

“Having a double brain aneurysm and a stroke at 45 is scary. Besides the trauma of what has happened to my brain and body, there of course has been a bit of physiological trauma too. I’ve had moments of being overwhelmed and sad,” she continued.

“But Jesus’ love overcomes all that. He continues day after day to be my healer and comforter.”
