Jan Holman, a 68-year-old woman who formerly resided in a hospital, now resides in Chester, England’s Hospice of the Good Shepherd. She is terminally ill and her time is running out. Although she received all the attention she need, she missed her dogs Monty and Rowley as well as her horses Bob, Monty, and Rowley.
The woman claimed that Bob played a significant role in her life and that, up until the day before going to the hospital, she had been riding him. The staff decided to surprise Jan by including her three animal buddies on the guest list after noticing her difficulties. This resulted in a joyful gathering.The staff at the hospice finished getting ready before taking Jan to the entrance to the courtyard to give him the sweet surprise.
Jan recognized her horse as being hers. When he arrived, Bob’s free-living neighbors from the Thornleigh Park Farm Stables were with him. Even though she was unable to get out of bed, the woman’s face revealed that she was content, particularly when she considered the possibility of meeting Bob once more. Bob entered the room, sat on Jan’s lap, and promptly rubbed Jan’s neck while sticking his head through the door so Jan could touch him.
Additionally, he enjoyed the apples, bananas, and carrots she fed him because of how delicious they were. Her face was radiant from her joy. I continued to ride Bob every day up until a few weeks ago, recalls Jan. He plays a significant role in my life, and I’ve really missed him. The finest part of the painful reunion was when her two puppies, Monty and Rowley, came and laid by her bed. Jan was glad to see her dogs again because she hadn’t had a chance to say goodbye to them before going to the hospital. Mrs. Jan was able to take in the heartwarming reunion and find the will to fight thanks to the excellent hospice care. Jan saw what he did next: ,,I can’t believe how much the staff at the hospice did for me.”
Jan’s joyful reunion with her three dogs and the precise period of time she spent with them are captured in many staff images. The mother and her family were aware that her two dogs might pay a visit, but they didn’t anticipate having the option of taking Bob or not. She and her husband are grateful for this, especially considering that since relocating to the hospice, she has been able to have more visitors.
