Joey Feek is dealing with a hard battle with cancer and is now on hospice. Today, her husband, Rory, went to their blog, This Life I Live, and shared a big update on how Joey is doing and how much he wants her life to be remembered when she is gone. Rory was sitting there watching his wife sleep as he wrote up a new blog. He shared that next to Joey’s bed they have pictures in frames, books, and things that were selected by Joey and her sisters.
Joey Feek recently had a walker brought to her home, and Rory shared the story all about how this went down. Joey is still a happy person, even with what she is going through now. Of course, Joey turned this into a way to spend time with her daughter.
“She was up earlier. Her sister Jody helped give her the morphine injection that goes in her port and helped her to the bathroom and back. A walker with wheels and a seat was delivered here yesterday and when we pulled it out for her this morning, Joey just laughed and said ‘I can’t use that … it’s for old people.’ Then she grabbed the handles and pushed herself out of the room.
“When she reached little Indiana playing with toys on the living room rug, she said ‘come on Indy, mama will take you for a ride.’ So I helped Indy onto the seat, and Joey pushed her across the living room, through the kitchen, around the island and table, and back to her toys. Indy grinned ear-to-ear and so did we.”
Rory Feek sounds like he has been by his wife the entire time. He shared that Joey asked for coffee, but when he brought it back to her, she was already sound asleep. Rory went on to share a story about his friend, Tim Johnson, who died of cancer a few years ago. Tim was young with children, just like Joey Feek, and it was shocking to everyone that he was battling cancer. Tim Johnson joined Joey and Rory on their television show at the time, and shared a song that he had wrote. As Rory said, this song now fits the life he is living with Joey. This song is called One More, and you can check it out in the video below.
This song, One More, explains how Rory feels right now. He just wants “one more year with the ones I love.” It goes on to talk about how he wants to have another spin around the sun and feels like he just started to see what it is all worth. The song is all about just wanting a little more time with your family, more days in your life, and more time to enjoy life. Rory would give anything to have this with Joey, but sadly it doesn’t look like this is going to end up happening. Rory explained how he wants Joey Feek to be remembered, and of course, her voice to not be forgotten by anyone.
ABC shared that Joey Feek is now spending time with her daughter, Indiana. At this time, she is at home with her little girl while in hospice. This way Joey can spend the time with her daughter before she leaves this world. They have a play area set up for Indiana right by Joey, and she has also been recording books for her so she will always hear her mom’s voice. There is no doubt that Joey Feek will be remembered forever, and her sweet voice will live on.
