This is so sweet. It was a ‘week to remember’ for Joey and Rory Feek, and it ended with Rory and his cancer-stricken wife snuggling in her bed after a romantic Valentine’s Day together.
Joey, 40, and Rory Feek, 49, love each other so much. As Joey valiantly faces her final days after battling terminal cancer, the country singer and her husband had a Valentine’s Day they’ll always remember. Rory planned a sweet date for his ailing wife, and at the end of the night, she asked him to “hold her” for the first time in months.
“As I said goodnight and tucked the blankets around her in the little hospital bed she has been living in for months she thanked me for the special night and then made one last request,” Rory wrote on his blog. “‘If Jody helps me to scoot over to one side … could you try to lay down with me and put your arms around me?’ I haven’t been able to be in the same bed with my wife or hold her in my arms since the beginning of November – when she made her last trip to the hospital. But for one sweet half-an-hour … that changed on Valentine’s Day.”
What an incredible moment. Joey and Rory have been through so much. It’s so nice to see them have a day of total bliss amidst their tough time. Rory also revealed that he and their daughter, Indiana, 2, planned the perfect Valentine’s Day for Joey. They watched the pre-Grammy celebrating together and picked up Joey’s favorite food — sushi — as a surprise. Rory documented the entire day with a series of photos.
“Thought she’d hardly eaten anything at all for the last couple of weeks … starting that night, her appetite came back and she had the greatest time,” he wrote. “Her three sisters helped her with make-up and she put on a nice shirt and scarf to look pretty for me.”
Joey posted a touching photo with her daughter on Valentine’s Day. Joey and Rory also celebrated Indiana’s second birthday on Feb. 17. “Some birthdays are more than just birthdays. They’re dreams coming true and prayers being answered,” Joey and Rory captioned a photo of Joey with Indiana. Stream Joey and Rory’s music now.
