I smell a rat.

A phone call from the private dialysis clinic doctor has me suspicious.

You wave enough money under the nose of these people and suddenly the price changes or his health drops a couple of notches.

We went to our church for XX amount for the total costs. The dialysis clinic have been told that it's all a go, but it seems things are going to change, specifically the costs.

Factor in the $4800 per month it's supposed to cost.
The $10k that needs to be paid before hand for the surgery and the month advance for fluids.
The gas it will cost to drive to and from Auckland when needed.
The cost of living - I don't know.
The cost of gas to and from the hospital.

He talked about overnight stays in the clinic/hospital there that he didn't say whether or not was included in the 56k. He's supposed to email us today sometime with a plan layout, if the price has changed we're declining and waiting for a Residency decision.

Again, two steps forward, three steps back.

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!
