Home again home again jiggedy jig.

Tramadol has been his friend since the Tenchkoff surgery. It works wonders.

Strict diet begins today. Since he is missing his Saturday session of dialysis, he needs to watch his fluid intake. It's all about urination this weekend and I'll refrain from the details and stats.

The whole dialysis and diet thing is frustrating me. He can't have this, he can only have so much of that, a serving of this and stay well away from that. After going through the list all that's left is cardboard and fresh air. The diet part is the hard part because I almost get into a domestic dispute trying to explain to him why he can't have a double whopper burger and large fries and at times I've given in just to lessen the headache.

Home for labour weekend and good to be here.

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!
