Siobhán’s adventure in Everest is even much more exciting than we could have imagined. While staying at base camp, Siobhán experienced some medical issues with her right arm causing her to spend a couple of days waiting in suspense to find out if she would continue the climb or return home. Siobhán was heartbroken to find out that due to the swelling of her arm, she would have to abandon her dream and head back home.
This is where the story would have ended for most people but Siobhán was so determined that when she began making her trek home, she stopped in Hong Kong and decided to return to Kathmandu in order to resume her climb! Siobhán’s health will be monitored by her doctor day and night during her climb by phone and text. She has promised her family that she will not take any massive risks. We hope her arm improves very quickly, allowing her to achieve her dream of climbing Mount Everest!
