Joey + Rory's Joey Feek Recovering From Cancer Surgery


(Undated) -- The personal dramas continue for country duo Joey + Rory. Rory Feek shares in a new blog post that his wife and singing partner underwent cancer surgery last Friday. He details their story, explaining that Joey was diagnosed with cervical cancer following a routine check-up. Rory says Joey underwent a radical hysterectomy to make sure all the cancer was removed, since the mass was "growing aggressively." He adds that the operation, which Joey underwent at Nashville's Centennial Medical Center, was a success. Rory says follow up tests "came back clean," and Joey "won't need chemo or radiation." Joey was released from the hospital just a day after the surgery, and Rory says "her swelling is going down and spirits continue to go up."

Rory adds that they've relied on their doctors and their faith to get them through what's been a "terrifying and thrilling" year. In February the couple celebrated the birth of their first child together, who's also Joey's first baby, only to learn a few days later that their infant daughter had Down Syndrome. Rory says it's been a remarkable experience caring for little Indiana. He adds that throughout her cancer ordeal Joey's only concerns have been about how having the disease might affect her ability to take care for her daughter.
