Non-Resident hostile.

The Hawkes Bay Hospital won't touch Larry as far as dialysis is concerned. Should he contract peritonitis, we'd have to wait a couple of days to get anti-biotics from Auckland to take care of it, anti biotics that need to be injected directly into the dialysis bags. If we even have a question we've been told the Hawkes Bay Hospital won't help us out because of the non-resident situation.

Awesome right?

We pay for all our hospital visits, hundreds sometimes thousands at a time. We've appreciated the support some doctors have offered, but to be told we can't even ask a question is pretty pathetic.

With the amount of people on dialysis, I don't know why this backwards country hasn't moved up with the Jones' yet and expanded resources.

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!
