Country singer Joey Feek is battling cervical cancer while her husband and music partner Rory Feek is keeping their fans updated about her health. In a recent blog post, the 49-year-old singer and songwriter has revealed that his wife is doing "really good" and the family is planning to celebrate Christmas with happy moments.
"Joey's still feeling pretty good. Really good actually," he wrote in his blogpost named This Life I Live. We've been able to keep her pain under control for the most part and her spirit is just as positive as ever. Even more so here lately."
The mother of one was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2014, three months after delivering her first child, daughter Indiana. The singer underwent several rounds of chemotherapy and a radical hysterectomy. But the cancer returned in October this year and started spreading aggressively to her abdominal areas.
Instead of going for another round of life saving but painful chemotherapy session, the couple decided to stop the treatment and bring Joey home under hospice so that she would spend rest of her days with her family.
The family is being hugely appreciated by their fans for the way they are showering love and care on the cancer-stricken singer. Recently, they moved Joey to a bigger house where the singer can enjoy nature's beauty from her bedroom's picture window.
"We moved Joey and us to a bigger house here this past Sunday," Rory continues in his Christmas blog. "Indy and I had been living out of a suitcase and needed a little more room and this place has a big picture window in the bedroom so Joey can look out and see white geese and black swans swimming in the pond and deer walking down the path. It's amazing."
The father of three also recalled the Christmas memories with his wife and children and how much he loves the festivity.
"My wife knows I love Christmas. There's a magic that's in the air that isn't there any other time of the year," he wrote on Friday. "Christmas does what no amount of New Years resolutions or self-help books can do... it changes people. It brings out the very best in us, and in others."
