Emergency Department

We wound up in the Emergency Department about an hour after we got home from the hospital this evening. First the blood at the site oozed, then congealed, then stopped then came back with a vengeance. It wasn't so much that I could see the blood pooling down his shirt, but the color left his face and his lips began to turn blue. Naturally, he thought he was He-Man and didn't want to go back to the hospital, but I pulled rank.

In a foul mood, we went to the Emergency Department where the receptionist told us her life story. With my husband bleeding and turning whiter than he already is, I quickly told her I didn't care and stated the urgency.

Long story short, he needed another stitch and was discharged .. not before he talked to the Doctor about 3D Animation and Lightwave vs Blender for 30 minutes.

I hate public health.

All seems well right now.
In trying to be optimistic, the clock telling me it's only 11.40pm is giving me the chills.

I just want 6 hours of sleep.
Sleep and I haven't been friends since May 2009.

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!
