Joey Feek moves to hospice care after terminal cancer diagnosis
Joey Feek of the husband and wife country duo Joey & Rory is now on hospice care.
The singer made the heartbreaking update to his blog, This Life I Live, on Monday, revealing that the cancer is very aggressive and is causing Joey a lot of pain.
“Joey is at peace with where she is and where she’s going,” Rory Feek wrote on Nov. 9 on thislifeilive.com, a website dedicated to his wife’s journey. “So am I.”
Last week it was revealed Joey has already said goodbye to her stepdaughters, Heidi and Hopie, whom Rory says she took on as “her own.”
“She told them how much she loved them, and how proud she is of them. And how proud she is to be their mother,” Rory wrote. “And then she talked with them about the one thing that she didn’t think she would ever have to talk with them about: Leaving them. And then she told them of the day when they’ll be together again in Heaven.”
Heaven will have to wait a bit longer, but she will remain home until that day comes.
“Hospice is arranged and a hospital bed will be delivered later this morning,” he wrote on Nov. 9. “We’ll have a play area on the carpet nearby — close enough for her to watch Indy play, and for Indy to turn and make sure her mama can see her.”
Over the weekend, Joey was rushed to the hospital with unbearable pain. There, “doctors told us that the pain was from the cancer tumors continuing to grow and become inflamed and we need to concentrate now on helping her be comfortable.”
