Avril here!!

July 21, 2012


They say life is what happens while you make plans, the last couple of weeks were certainly not on my agenda! A tooth abscess followed by what seemed to be a sickness bug seem to be laying me very low, the hospital kept sending me home, my GP had no idea and my family were beside themselves with worry, finally my brother persuaded the hospital to do a CT scan and they found 2 brain haematoma’s and within 48 hours I was having emergency brain surgery! I had little idea in the last few days what was happening, but I came tojust before the surgery in time to be told what they were doing and I could die! I can’t say I was too upset about that at the time, I had had enough pain to want out.

I am so lucky that I have come through the surgery completely restored, I cannot tell you how rapidly I am recovering, it is like a miracle! I am sure because of all the love and support I have had and am receiving from my amazing family, gorgeous friends and my very special clients!

I will be back in the office part-time from Monday 30th June, and I will make a call then on when the current courses and training will resume. Thank you to everyone for your patience at this extreme time for me! I will keep you posted.

      Hi Jenni thank you so much, so good to hear from you! Matthew came over as you might guess and stayed with his lovely wife to be to nurse me back to health, so I was well spoilt! Not I will see him next in New York for their wedding so it will be a while before I get to OZ again, but do hope we can catch up when I do, some more sitting on the shore line enjoying the sunset and a beer with you would be something to look forward to!

        Avril, So good to hear from you. So exciting about your son and fantastic he could help you. I have had my mum seriously ill but she has pulled through ok . I have a new email : jenni-miller@bigpond.com Your puppies are gorgeous. We have a new baby in our life after losing my other two. Another golden retriever, her name is Lily and we are besotted with her. She is now 8 1/2 months. She has brought such joy to our lives as we never thought we could be so lucky to have another as wonderful as our last. We were wrong and we adore her. I am looking forward to you coming out and having that beer watching the sunset. Lots of love and take care of yourself Jenni Miller xxxx

    Hi Avril,
    Wow, that’s some high pain threshold you had going on at the time!
    When we turned up for our puppy class, your sister told us that you had been rushed into hospital, she was so upset, the worry was ectched on her face. So, I’m sure it’s a huge relief to your family to have you bouncing back quickly.

    Best wishes,
    Jill and Lucy(who is huge now)
