Joey Feek may be near death as the Grammy nominated country singer's pain medicine dosages have quadrupled in four days, her husband and bandmate Rory wrote in a blog post over the weekend.
The Feeks have been dealing with a looming loss following Joey’s decision to end her cancer treatments in late October and spend the rest of her days in hospice care with her family at her side. She was first diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer in May 2014, just a few months after the birth of daughter Indiana.
"I'd like to tell you that she's doing great and is going to beat this thing," Rory Feek wrote on his "This Life I Live" blog Saturday
. "But I can't. Yesterday with tears in her eyes and mine, Joey held my hand and told me that she has been having serious talks with Jesus. She said she told him that if He's ready to take her . . . she's ready to come home."
"He knew I would need her to tell me goodbye . . . not just once, but a thousand times," he continued. "And I'd need to know that no matter how much time passes, that she loves me still. And He made it so that if I needed to be reminded of her beautiful life and heart and voice . . . she would only be a 'click' away."
He was referencing the 2012 Sandy Lawrence song "When I'm Gone," which Joey Feek recorded and included on the Joey+Rory album "His and Hers." Rory Feek explained that he felt the song hit close to home even then before his wife's cancer diagnosis.
"And though it scared me for us to be that vulnerable, it was also what our whole lives and music career was about — being real . . . being honest," he wrote of shooting the music video for the song. "And so the cameras rolled and both Joey and I let us ourselves imagine what it would be like if she had to leave this world and I was left behind without her . . . And now, here I sit beside my dying wife."
In December, the musical husband-and-wife duo was nominated for a Grammy Award for best country duo/group performance for the song "If I Needed You," the first nomination for them both.
