Joey Feek is spending her final days with her loved ones. As the Joey+Rory country singer continues to battle stage four cervical cancer, her husband, Rory Feek, updated fans on her condition over Facebook Wednesday.
“Feeling broken-hearted and blessed all at the same time this morning,” Rory, 49, captioned a photo of his 40–year-old wife bonding with their daughter Indiana, 23 months, in her hospital bed. “Watching my beautiful bride pour a lifetime of love into a few minutes a day,” he continued. The image has since received over 195,000 likes and over 11,000 comments.
This isn’t the first time Rory has shared photos of Indiana bonding with her mother from her hospital bed. Last month, Rory wrote in their blog “This Life I Live” that their daughter was able to make his wife joyful after “some tough days” by showing off her “expressive” facials.
“The decline of her condition was weighing heavily on her and all of our minds,” Rory wrote. “But in a matter of minutes, Indy had her mama laughing out loud. Like she did that day in August in Atlanta when Joey was starting chemo, I think our baby is continuing to cheer her mama on in her fight – the best way she knows how … by making her smile.”
Rory’s most recent update comes just days after he revealed Rory had participated in some impromptu animal therapy. On Jan. 27, Rory shared a Facebook image of his wife kissing a puppy. “Some baby puppies came to play with Indy the other day, but I think her mama loved the visit the most,” he said.
Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer in June 2014. The following month, the singer underwent a hysterectomy, only for her cancer to return in October 2015. According to People, she shortly after began receieving hospice care. She is currently at her home in Alexandria, Indiana.
