Still at home in hospice care for her terminal cancer, Feek shared a collage of pictures to Facebook Thursday, celebrating her daughter, Indiana’s 22-month birthday.
Joey Feek gives Indy birthday kisses
“…birthday bed-time kisses from Mama,” Feek captioned the sweet snaps, showing her kissing little Indy in her hospice bed. “Good night little one, today you are 22 months old.”
Fans of Feek took to the comment section to share their support. “Mama and her baby, one of the sweetest bonds ever. Glad to see a big smile on Joey’s face today,” one fan wrote. Plenty of supporters commented with heart emojis and other sweet messages, including one that said, “As I’m looking at these pictures my eyes are filling with tears. This is such a beautiful moment. That beautiful little Mama giving her Mommy kisses. God is listening Joey. I will keep praying for you.”
Feek and her husband Rory have been bravely documenting her battle with cervical cancer, both on social media and on Rory’s blog. In October, after tests showed Feek’s cancer was aggressively spreading, she made the choice to stop treatment and enter hospice care at home.
But since returning home, Feek has spent more time with family, especially her little girl. Earlier this week, a moving video posted to her Facebook page showed her surprising family by getting out of bed, joining them in the living room and playing with Indy on the floor.
“We had some friends and family here at the house with us, and when the door to her bedroom opened up and she came out in the living room, we almost couldn’t believe our eyes,” Rory wrote about the day’s events. “We were all so proud of her, but I think Joey was even more proud of herself.”
