Surgery Prep. Very nervous guy.

After Recovery.
Location: Cloud Nine.
When I asked him what day it was he said Mothers Day.

Day after.
Mucho swelling, but he says the pain is not near as bad as last weeks after laser surgery.

I had to post this image, it was in the same set of images with the eye photos.
It's my sister.
Picking watercress.
From a ditch.
A ditch, as in on-the-side-of-the-road-catching-rain-water ditch.

We went to pick up his prescription medication this afternoon, which was his three months worth of medication. I had my debit card out and ready waiting for the bill, but it didn't come. Instead the pharmacist informed us that there was nothing to pay because he is now exempt. As much as I wanted to ask questions, I didn't. I've learned from several medical personnel over the last few days that there is a don't ask don't tell policy they all tend to secretly cling to.

I don't know .. but I will run with it.
Unfortunately Recormon passes through NZ's FDA equivalent each time it's ordered and we've been using a different pharmacy for the Recormon prescription because our regular pharmacist is in the dark on a few things.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
