An update.

Good news. The Dialysis process will begin as early as next week.
Our church, who we are extremely thankful for, will fund the treatment until Immigration comes back with a decision. He will have the minor surgery for the catheter to be installed, after which 3 weeks are needed for the surgery to heal and the dialysis treatment will begin. Our Doctor literally jumped up and down with excitement when we told her this morning.

We will relocate to Auckland for 3 weeks for the education required regarding the treatment.

Bloods and Recormon shot today. Our Doctor was surprised at how 'pink' he looks compared to every other visit, she was very happy with his obs today. Blood pressure sitting at 120/60 - best ever. Blood results should be in this afternoon. Weight is 120kg, up 5kgs.

Eye appointment, follow up, on Thursday. There is a cyst looking lump in his eye that our Doctor had never seen before, but is apparently normal after such a surgery. The good thing is, he can see much better and he feels much better.

In other news, we were hit with a 5.4 earthquake this morning.

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!
