It looks as though Joey Feek’s battle with cancer will soon reach an end. According to a heartbreaking statement from her husband Rory, the 40-year-old singer has been “asleep for days now and her body is shutting down quickly.”
“Over the last number of weeks her pain had gotten worse and her health had continued to decline rapidly,” Rory Feek explained in a post shared on his blog, This Life I Live. “And not long after Indy’s birthday my wife decided that ‘enough is enough’. She was ready to stop fighting and she told me so.”
Rory goes on to say that their hospice nurse believes that Joey only has a few days left “at the most.” Friends and family members in Joey’s Indiana hometown gathered to share their last goodbyes with Feek before they returned to their Columbia, Tenn. home, where Joey will be laid to rest. Rory also shared a photo of his wife and young daughter, Indiana, sharing “one last kiss” before drifting back into sleep.
“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,'” Rory shared. “‘I can honestly say, that I have done everything I wanted to do and lived the life I always wanted to live.'”
