Joey Feek's Heartbreaking Good-bye for Daughter as Health Declines
In an emotional new blog post, Rory Feek reveals that his wife Joey, who has terminal cancer, has been asleep for days and that her “body is shutting down quickly.” Hospice nurses believe she only has a few more days to live.
Before she took this turn for the worse, Joey said good-bye to her loved ones, including daughter Indiana, 2.
“I set our little Indy on Joey's lap and we all cried with my wife as she told her how much her mama loved her and, '…you be a big girl for your papa… and that mama will be watching over you.' And then she pulled Indiana up and she kissed her. One last kiss.”
Rory added, “God only gives each of us a certain amount of time to be on this earth and every day when we wake up, we get to decide how we are going to spend those precious minutes and hours. There are no do-overs, no second-chances, no next-time-around's to get it right. Joey knew this and she has made each and every day count. 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.”
