Joey Feek hasn't let her battle with cancer — or the fact that she's bedridden — stop her from taking care of things around her house. Her husband, Rory Feek, shared a photo of the country singer, who makes up one half of Joey+Rory, revealing to fans how she stays in charge from the comfort and safety of her hospice bed.
As People magazine reported, Rory, 49, snapped a picture of Joey, 40, hard at work on Sunday dinner for her family. Although she cannot get out of bed in her current condition, Rory was able to bring some semblance of a kitchen to her bedside by surrounding her with cutting boards and rolling tables filled with the necessary tools. In the Instagram snapshot the mother of one can be seen emptying out a blender full of vegetables into a large bowl. Rory did not reveal to followers what Joey was whipping up.
Food has played a major role in bringing Joey, Rory and their children together during this difficult time. On Saturday, the father of three took to their family blog, This Life I Live, to give fans a glimpse into their special Valentine's Day celebration. While Rory initially planned to celebrate the big day, which is also the anniversary of he and Joey's first date, with a barbeque, he noted that his wife was simply too sick for that. He refused to allow her illness to hold him back completely, however, and organized a special sushi dinner at home. In the post Rory wrote that he and youngest daughter Indiana had to drive "through what seemed like a blizzard" to get to Joey's favorite sushi spot, but they made it. Although it wasn't an easy dinner to put together, Rory assured fans that it was worth it to see the surprise on Joey's face, adding that she'd "hardly eaten anything at all for the last couple of weeks."
In addition to prepping meals for her husband and their children, Joey has made some preparations for after she's gone. With her condition getting worse, Rory revealed in a blog posted on Feb. 4 that his wife was making preparations for spring. Despite being incredibly weak, Joey, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in June 2014, decided to get a head start on planting the family's garden in the hopes that her seedlings would bloom when warm weather comes. Rory wrote that this was his wife's special way of "putting down roots" in life as well as in her family's hearts.
