Joey Feek Walks After Being Bedridden for Weeks

Dying country singer surprises her family and delights her daughter.

— -- Just when it seemed Joey Feek was too weak to ever leave her bed again, the country star got up, walked and even sat on the floor to play with her 22-month-old daughter Indiana.

Her husband Rory Feek shared the good news with fans on his blog This Life I Live on Sunday.

"Joey decided to get out of bed and take a little stroll," he wrote, calling it a "gift."

"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," he added. "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."

Rory revealed how this past Friday, Joey's sister, Jody, helped her out of bed and how surprised friends and family were when she walked into the living room.

"We almost couldn’t believe our eyes," he wrote. "We were all so proud of her, but I think Joey was even more proud of herself."

Rory posted a photo from the impromptu play-date to the couple's Facebook page on Friday.
