Hillsong singer leaves hospital after brain aneurysm

by Cara Bentley

Taylor was taken to an intensive care unit after an 8am service at the Hills campus site in Sydney on 18th August it was discovered she had a brain aneurysm, a bulge in a blood vessel that can cause sudden agonising headaches, a stiff neck, sickness and pain when looking at light.

Chelsea Taylor had neck and back pain, making moving around difficult and also had surgery on her brain.

Her friend and fellow singer Emma Fellers wrote on Instagram on 23rd September that she can now walk, talk and drive.

She still needs physiotherapy and recovery time at home but was allowed to leave the High Dependency Unit.

Emma Fellers wrote on Instagram: "COMING HOOOOOOOOMMMEEEE!!!!!!!! 100% healed, able to walk, talk, DRIVE ?? (still needing recovery time at home and continued physiotherapy obviously), but PRAISE GOD, He is FAITHFUL!!!!! LOVE YOU GIRL!!!!!"

In a text message screenshotted, Chelsea wrote that she was "reminding my heart that everything is in the Lord's perfect timing".

Ten days earlier, Emma had visited her and posted afterwards: "Her sense of humour hasn't changed one bit, her speech is perfect, almost as though nothing has happened, she can get up and move around (with a bit of help from nurses)."

Others who visited her in the last fortnight acknowledged how she had returned more to her usual character, with Tony Crocker from Hillsong in Sydney writing on 16th September: "How blessed we were to find our Chelsea back to her old self. Doing so well and believes she will be out of the High Dependency unit in the next day or so...a very positive acknowledgment of her progress.

"No doubt about it being a divine move of God and what a testimony to the medical staff and especially her surgeon. Was great to be able to pray with her and share communion. Chelsea is so grateful for the prayers of so many."
