Going home.

It's labour weekend this coming weekend. We're hoping to go home for 4 - 5 days, but it's a full on week.

Depending on how he is on Wednesday determines whether or not we go home.

Insomnia is a side effect of having dialysis treatments and it's not awesome.
3 hours of sleep because if he can't sleep he takes the attitude that no one is going to sleep.

Update:
Thumbs up from the Doctor to go home after dialysis on Thursday. We need to be back on Monday. Half a day traveling in the car is worth the short 3 days of being home.

Recormon dose has been upped to the max of 10,000mls, twice a week.

Today's treatment was 4 hours 30 minutes, the max he'll have.
Stitches out today.
Surgery tomorrow.
Sleep now.

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!
