Support System

Yesterday the blog got over 100 hits. I wasn't aware that my husband had been sharing the link with fellow LightWavers and we've had quite a few emails, IMs, Facebook posts of support and these are very much so appreciated.

The sole reason for this blog is basically the pre-cursor to going to the media with our story when the time comes. I need to record every part of unfairness that we are faced with, every denial from government agencies and medical boards and every move we make in the right direction only to be sent to the back of the line again.

Blood tests are weekly now and today is that day.
It's also August. 2 months have passed.

I think our story is more important than Lindsay Lohan's release from jail quite frankly and somehow she made the front page today.

You'll also notice the donation button to the right. Call me proud, it wasn't my idea, but you know what? I don't have 56k a year for dialysis treatment. I don't know who in my family even makes that much a year.

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!
