    Hi newliz

    i have just read your story , I have a horse and pony ( well the horse is actually my daughters, but they are ‘ours’ ), my daughter and I were very active with them , I loved poo picking, mucking out in the frosty cold early winter mornings, the the beautiful summer evening rides in the local forest,,,,,Then ,, it all changed,, COVID hit, and then I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer,, I was in hospital for 3.5 weeks seriously I’ll , 6 attempts to get a stint put into my bile duct ,and to get my liver working correctly, 

    its now been 4.months since I was diagnosed, I am having chemotherapy every other week, and it has been tough , I am awaiting a scan to see how things are and whether I can be put forward for and operation.

    my whole life changed now , on my week off chemo my daughter takes me to see our horses, grooming is as much as I can do if I am very careful, but I don’t look at what i used to do, I enjoy what I do do with them no matter how small it may seem, they understand,!! It is in their looks and body language, and to me that is priceless,
