Joey+Rory’s Joey Feek has been bedridden for weeks, but a few days ago she decided to take a walk.
“That’s not as simple as it sounds when you’ve been in a hospital bed for weeks and were prepared to possibly never walk again,” her husband and duo partner Rory Feek wrote on his blog. “But I guess the power-of-the-will is much stronger than the power of fear. Honestly, I think Joey just got tired of listening to life going on in the rooms outside of her bedroom and tired of wondering what it would be like to be part of it… and she just had her sister Jody help her out of bed and she came out and sat down and joined in for about an hour and a half.”
Family and friends visited with Joey, before she took the opportunity to bond with 23-month-old Indiana.
“A few minutes later, my wife had slid from the couch to the floor and was able to be something for Indiana that she hadn’t been able be in weeks and weeks,” Rory wrote. “She was a mama again. Playing with and teaching sign language to her little girl, like she’d been dreaming of being able to do.”
