INDIANAPOLIS — Country singer Joey Feek has only a few more days to live and has said her last goodbyes, according to her husband, Rory.
Rory, who with his wife makes up the country duo Joey + Rory, said in a This Life I Live blog post that Joey is now in a “deep sleep.”
Fans have been following their journey since Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer a few months after she gave birth to their daughter, Indiana, in 2014.
“The hospice nurse came again this morning and said Joey will most-likely only be with us for a few more days… at the most.”
Before falling into the “deep sleep,” she told her daughter, Indiana, that she loved her and “mama will be watching over you.” Rory said Joey gave their daughter “one last kiss.”
“One of the last things Joey said before she drifted into the deep sleep she’s been in for a few days now is, “I have no regrets… I can honestly say, that I have done everything I wanted to do and lived the life I always wanted to live.”
Rory ended his blog post with a note to those who have followed his wife’s journey.
“And 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.
Last year, the couple chose to end treatments for Joey’s stage 4 cancer, for which she had undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Joey was moved to hospice care at the end of last year after doctors told her there was nothing more they could do for her.
The pair came to fame after appearing in 2008 on the CMT reality singing competition “Can You Duet.” They had a hit with their single “Cheater, Cheater” that same year. The couple also appeared in commercials for Overstock.com.
