After posting last week that his wife was in the ICU, U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins says she's recovering.

"Update: Becca has been released from ICU. Recovery has begun. Neurological medical issues are very complex, impossible to explain in a paragraph, just please know that we are forever grateful for the loving prayers we’ve felt from all of you. I am humbled by the healing grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His will be done," Higgins posted on his Facebook page.

Last week, Higgins posted that his wife was in the hospital, and asked for prayers.

"Yesterday afternoon, my wife Becca experienced a serious neurological episode," Higgins says on his Facebook page. "Thank God that Mama was with her, I was on my way home from DC. She’s receiving excellent care and further evaluation at a Louisiana hospital ICU. I am here with her every minute. Please keep Becca and my family in your prayers."
