Firstly I would like to apologise profusely for my owner having only just given me my first proper holiday to catch up with all my blog writing – and there’s a lot of it I tell you! But, rather than miss out on any of our exciting adventures, we head back to the start of August for chemotherapy round two.
We, that’s myself, Hannah and Mum, arrived at hospital bright and early; 8 in the morning to be exact. Hannah was complaining of boredom already and it was only day 1. Clearly she was feeling much better and had got the riding bug again.
Well Saturday was Hannah’s first night back in a comfy bed after a very long time in hospital - hallelujah! Finally her pain seems to be almost sorted bar some stiffness from radiotherapy which is really great news and I’m so chuffed for her. A bacon and egg sandwich, yes some real food for the first time in ages, started our day followed by a lovely time in the sun watching Frank being schooled. It’s bitter sweet watching him being ridden but ultimately gives Hannah a true drive to get back on board and beat this awful disease. Her Grandma and Grampy came for lunch and a catch up which was really lovely before the other Granny came for tea and cake that afternoon! So many visitors, but what can I say, I am a VIP after all (with 15,000 followers on Instagram now – thank you!).
So after such a lovely day at Chepstow on the Saturday it was fair to say Hannah’s body hadn’t enjoyed it as much as her heart had, though I must say I was a little worse for wear too after being strapped by my arms to a stirrup loop! But oh dear did her whole body ache and groan that Sunday, Monday and after that. Not fair is it when you enjoy something so much yet get punished for it is it?
Hello again, Willberry Wonder Pony here hoping all of my fans out there haven’t missed me too much. I hear I have quite the fan base now; 12,000 followers on Instagram and 2,000 on twitter! Oooh I say, I do feel rather special, although Hannah keeps reminding me I “mustn’t let it get to my head else it’ll get as big as my belly” which personally I think is rather rude. So let’s head back to last Sunday shall we, Hannah’s first Sunday in a long time she’s been out of hospital.
Hello hello, its Hannah this time! I thought I would take over the reins from Willberry in the hope that maybe I can be a little more concise about the start of my chemotherapy cycle two than the last blog you poor people had to ramble through… So where did Willberry finish off for me to start?
