Happy Sabbath

One of the reasons for coming home was to collect our mail. I had hoped there would be something from NZ Immigration. It was not so. There are two applications in. His Residency application and the Work Permit application. They also have his passport because it was required for the work permit application.

I've learned that calling immigrations customer service and inquiring may or may not irritate someone there, so I refrain from doing it because as long as there is an application pending, he's ok to stay.

Fluid retention, if any, over the last couple of days has been minimal and he has been successful in keeping with the 1 liter of fluid allowed.

Back to Auckland tomorrow. From here we wait for the tenchkoff to heal. While that heals he continues haemo dialysis and the education for peritoneal dialysis begins.

We also have a prescription for 6 weeks of Recormon. That's $2400.
Yeah right, it can stay in my car until we win the lotto as far as I'm concerned, which didn't happen last night, by the way.

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!
