Joey+Rory’s Rory Feek updates fans on Joey’s condition

I think every time I read a blog post from Rory Feek these days I cry. It’s a strange cry because I’ve never met them, but over the last few months I’ve grown quite attached and invested in their story.

I’m pretty sure many others have too.

Anyway, Rory updated his blog this morning to let fans know how Joey, who recently stopped cancer treatment, is doing.

The update was heartbreaking but beautiful.

Joey is still sleeping a lot and she hasn’t been outside the house in over a week. Too weak and too tired to even try to get up and go out. But today she did.

All of Rory’s blog posts these days are that way. So sad but uplifting in an odd way. You know how this journey is going to end, but it’s a lovely journey despite that knowledge.

Rory says that he, Joey, and daughter Indiana have gone to stay with Joey’s family and his two adult daughters recently drove up from Nashville to visit. This most recent blog post was mostly about them and their relationship with Joey.

And as usual, I cried.

Ugh. I hate crying.

You can read the full blog post here.

Rory also wrote a blog post on Halloween.

And, yes, I cried.

Most of Joey’s immune system is gone now and she’s thin and frail. Where she once jumped out of bed before the sun rose to rush out to her garden… she now quietly sleeps away most of the days. I lie beside her at night and I hold her hand and listen to her breathe. And I pray.

One of the things he wrote about is that they are planning on having a prayer vigil this Thursday that they would love others to join in on.

Joey PrayerJoey’s sisters and her best-friend Julie have chosen a special time for people to say a prayer with us for Joey…

Thursday evening, November 5th at 8 pm CST.

You can call it a prayer vigil, or a moment of silence, or what it actually is… a husband asking for help for the woman he loves.

But please, one thing I ask… don’t just pray that Joey is healed. Yes, pray for a miracle. But also pray for peace in her heart, and ours, if God chooses not to let this cup pass from her sweet lips.

His will, not ours.

That’s 8 p.m. central, 9 p.m. eastern, 7 p.m. mountain, and 6 p.m. pacific, just in case you were wondering.

I don’t know about you, but I know what I’ll be doing on Thursday evening.

And, yes, I’m sure I’ll be crying.

    Dear Joey:

    Hi,

    Sometimes in life there are these people who are so very STRONG. I hope that you get to read this. We believe that you three are some of them. When everything else fails, you SURVIVE. Live in your spirit and not in your pain. SPEAK GOD’S SCRIPTURES out loud over your body constantly!! I know just what I am talking about. God healed me long time ago of MS. The drs. told me to go home and die. I said that I was going to believe in Hebrews 13:8 That God is the same today, tomorrow and yesterday. So I said Dr. Jesus I am going to believe you. I did not get an immediate miracle, but I got one. It took three years!!! My legs were partially paralyzed and when I spoke Gods word over my entire body and legs – my toes started to move. I knew then that I was on to something. Greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world. You can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengenthens you!! By Jesus Christ stripes you ARE HEALED. We LOVE you guys and are standing with you with JESUS!! You can do it Joey with JESUS!!!

    Dear Rory & Joey, I have never heard your music before an came across a news report about Joey being sick again and I clicked on it to read the story an have not been able to stop thinking about both of you. Joey your voice is beautiful an if it is Gods will to bring you home I’m sure it’s because your voice is needed in heaven. My prayers go out to both of you an your family. May God hold you all very near an dear.

    Dear Joey and Rory:

    I had this dream about you guys this morning!!! We are Christians!! Please Dear God in Heaven let them read this and take action!! First of all the Lord tells us we have 80-120 years to live in the Bible. This is way before your time. Yes I know people do go to Heaven way before their times.My own sister died at 36 yrs young before I knew all this. My people die do to lack of knowledge. I wrote to you a couple of days ago. This came to me this morning.

    Just because the drs. tell you this is it IT does not have to be. I told you the Lord healed me of MS when the drs.told me this was IT. SPEAK those healing scriptures that I told you about. CALL DR. DON COLBERT at 1-407-331-7007.Tell them who you are. He takes people from ALL over the WORLD!! HE IS A CHRISTIAN HOLISTIC DOCTOR. MEANING CHRISTIAN, MIND AND BOBY AND SOUL DOCTOR.

    ANOTHER TRUE STORY. My immune system was totally shot, my endoctrine system was shot, my entroquin (SP?) was shot and I was taking care of my Mother for 9-1/2 yrs. and working a full time job. NO OTHER DOCTOR COULD HELP ME!!! HE DETOXED ME BECAUSE OF TOXINS-YOU HAVE CHEMO AND RADIATION WHICH ARE TOXINS. HE PUT ME ON HIS VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS AND MY HUSBAND AND I JUICED TO HEAL MY SYSTEM!!

    YOU HAVE TO REVERSE WHAT HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU.

    JOEY PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS OR RORY PLEASE READ THIS TO JOEY!! YOU ARE HAVING A PRAYER VIGIL NOV. 5TH AND THIS IS YOUR ANSWER.

    FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD!! DO NOT do not go the HOSPICE way they only euthinize you which KILLS YOU. I KNOW I WORKED FOR THEM.

    PLEASE CALL DR. DON. COLBERT HE MAY EVEN COME TO YOU SINCE YOU ARE CELEBRITIES. I BEG OF YOU TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY. I felt that Joey would really connect with this. WE LOVE YOU BOTH!!

    YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING FOR FAITH TO WORK. GET UP AND CALL DR. DON COLBERT BEFORE THE WEEKEND PLEASE.

    DARLENE AND TERRY PHILPOT

    Dear Joey and Rory and Family,
    I wanted to send my heartfelt prayers to you across the miles. I have been praying for Joey and Rory since the day I learned of the diagnosis. I have prayed many Rosary for Joey and Rory and Indiana. What a beautiful family and people. I had the opportunity meet Joey and Rory during a farmhouse concert this past June. It felt like I was at home. My heart aches at the news, I pray for a Miracle. I believe 100% in the power of prayers.

    May God in his almighty grace give Joey and her family peace and memories of happy times in their hours of need. God knows best and my granny told me when God took my first husband at age 28 and a wonderful marriage and a daughter of 5 years of age that God need another Tenor singer in his chorus. Maybe in this case he just needs a complete new ANGEL Chorus!!! Love be with you all!
