Back to Auckland

We're going back to Auckland next week.
His blood work wasn't good today, so it's likely he'll need Haemodialysis and a blood transfusion, unless we can miraculously get his creatinine and hemoglobin down and up this week. How we managed to get it down and up in 2 days a few weeks ago, I'm not entirely sure.
We've been told we'll be in Auckland for up to 6 weeks.
I didn't grow fond of Auckland while we were there, but what can you do.
The Doctors are happy he changed his mind, I'm happy he's changed his mind.
We see the eye doctor tomorrow. It's supposed to be for more laser surgery, but the last thing we need right now is for issues to arise with his eyes so close to dialysis.

The pharmacy also discovered today that we weren't supposed to be subsidized, so cheers to paying for prescriptions now AND thumbs up to $200 on Recormon today. This morning Larry begged me for an iPod touch, to listen to his music because our tastes in music differ. I was all for it until we were handed the Recormon prescription.

Good times.
What is it?

The light at the end of our tunnel.

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!
