Terminally Ill Joey Feek Only Has A Few More Days ‘At The Most,’ Husband Says
Joey Feek has been asleep for days, her husband Rory wrote on his blog, This Life I Live, earlier today.
The singer, who was diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer in 2014, has been in hospice care for some time.According to Rory’s post, “her body is shutting down quickly” and “the hospice nurse came again this morning and said Joey will most likely only be with us a few more days … at the most.”
“Over the last number of weeks her pain had gotten worse and her health had continued to decline rapidly. And not long after Indy’s birthday [earlier this month] my wife decided that ‘enough is enough.’ She was ready to stop fighting and she told me so,” he wrote. “She said the flowers would soon be blooming back in Tennessee. It’s time to go home.”
He ended the post by thanking those who have been supporting Joey and the family over the past few months, writing; Thank you to all who have followed my wife’s beautiful journey. Who are still following. Though our hearts are heavy we all need to do our best to remember that this is not the end. It’s only the beginning.
‘When Joey takes her last breath here… she will take her first breath there. In heaven.’
Rory also posted a video he made featuring some of his favorite photos of Joey set to a song the two recorded but never released called ‘In The Time That You Gave Me.’
