Country music artist, Joey Feek had a breakdown moment when she saw a picture of her daughter’s best friend riding a horse and her husband Rory was left wondering what was wrong. He is having a difficult time dealing with the fact that Joey may not be with him much longer. People, Nov. 23, 2015, reported that Rory is writing down his feelings and emotions in his blog, “This Life I Live.”
Rory and Joey has a firm belief in God and it has not shaken Joey’s faith at all, but some realities are hitting them hard. Joey, who is suffering from terminal stage 4 cervical cancer, tries to remain optimistic and happy in spite of the pain and her husband is there for her to help her along the way.
According to Rory’s blog, Joey is in hospice care and the doctors haven’t given her long to live, anywhere from a few weeks to a couple months. Rory keeps fans up to date as he writes out his emotions on his blog, His latest post was an emotional one as he told about Joey’s reaction to a picture of a horse, with their daughter’s best friend, Scout, riding on top. The reality was more than Joey could handle as she closed her eyes and started shaking.
Rory didn’t know what was wrong and he asked Joey if she was in pain or what was she feeling at that moment. He said he tried to comfort her by holding her close and that was when she told him, with tears rolling down her face, “I want to raise our baby. I want to be the one to teach her.” He held her a long time trying to give comfort to the woman he loves, the woman he married, the mother to his daughter Indiana, and step-mother to his children, Heidi and Hope.
Rory wrote in his blog, “I held her in my arms as she held Scout’s picture to her heart and cried and cried. I didn’t know what to do. Then, just like that – over my shoulder, through the window she saw it … snow. It was snowing. Huge white flakes were falling from above.”
The snow made her smile, it lit up her face and she said, ‘I didn’t think I’d get to see snow again.’ And she looked at me, then raised her eyes up at [the] sky and said, ‘If this is the last snow I ever see, thank you Jesus … thank you.’ Like manna from Heaven. God sent us just what we needed … just when we needed it. He always does.”
Apparently, Joey was so elated with the snow, that she went out and videotaped it. Joey’s daughter has Downs-Syndrome, and her friend Scout has Loeys-Dietz Syndrome. The proceeds of Joey and Rory’s last collection of music, a beautiful collection of hymns is set to be released around Valentine’s Day. Part of the proceeds will go to the Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation.
Rory wrote, “The one she’s always wanted to make – filled with the hymns she grew up with. We recorded it in a studio in Nashville early in the summer – just after recovering from her first big surgery in Chicago. And then she did her vocals where she could … in hotel rooms, our house, wherever and whenever she felt up to singing.”
