As country singer Joey Feek's battle with cancer progresses, her husband and musical partner Rory Feek is continuing to keep their friends, family and fans up-to-date on her condition.
Rory shared some touching new photos on Sunday, along with an emotional update on Joey's struggle since entering hospice care at the family's home earlier this month.
"Though now, she can no longer get out of bed – she is so sharp and clear and her pain, for the most part, is so under control by the medicine that talking to her – you would think she's her normal self. Thinner. Much thinner. And with a hip new hairdo. But she is beautiful. So so so beautiful," Rory shared in the post titled "Braver than me."
Joey, 40, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014, just months after giving birth to the couple's daughter Indiana, who was born with Down syndrome.
Indiana has been spending every day with her mother, and Rory shared an emotional photo of his wife and young daughter in this latest post.
"She wants to be remembered as a singer of songs. A devoted wife. A loving mother. Not a cancer patient," Rory wrote.
He also spoke to his wife's indomitable spirit and will, explaining, "There isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't look me and her family in the eye and say, 'I'm gonna beat this,' or, 'I'm getting better, I believe that.' And she asks me if I believe it, and I do. I choose to."
Joey and Rory Feek's career before the diagnosis:
Rory admitted that her time in hospice care has been a "rollercoaster" in terms of his wife's health and energy levels, but said that they ultimately will spend their time together, with family, and enjoying life to the fullest extent possible.
