Joey Feek has been asleep for days, her husband Rory wrote on his blog, This Life I Live, earlier today.
The singer, who was diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer in 2014, has been in hospice care for some time.
According to Rory's post, "her body is shutting down quickly" and "the hospice nurse came again this morning and said Joey will most likely only be with us a few more days ... at the most."
"Over the last number of weeks her pain had gotten worse and her health had continued to decline rapidly. And not long after Indy’s birthday [earlier this month] my wife decided that 'enough is enough.' She was ready to stop fighting and she told me so," he wrote. "She said the flowers would soon be blooming back in Tennessee. It’s time to go home."
Rory Feek, 49, wrote that his wife, 40, recently said goodbye to her parents and three sisters. After their tearful conversation, she asked Rory to bring in Indiana, their 2-year-old daughter.
"I set our little Indy on Joey’s lap and we all cried with my wife as she told her how much her mama loved her and, '...you be a big girl for your papa ... and that mama will be watching over you,'" he wrote. "And then she pulled Indiana up and she kissed her. One last kiss."
The musician, one-half of the singing duo Joey + Rory, has lived "a very full life," her husband wrote.
"God only gives each of us a certain amount of time to be on this earth and every day when we wake up, we get to decide how we are going to spend those precious minutes and hours. There are no do-overs, no second-chances, no next-time-around’s to get it right. Joey knew this and she has made each and every day count," he wrote.
He added: "One of the last things Joey said before she drifted into the deep sleep she’s been in for a few days now is, 'I have no regrets ... I can honestly say, that I have done everything I wanted to do and lived the life I always wanted to live.'"
