End of Thursday

4pm - Renal Nurse. Traffic got her here at near 5pm. She answered questions we'd gathered over the last two days. On Saturday she will flush the catheter to make sure it's all working properly after 3 weeks of healing. Fingers crossed. The specialist said it will looked out of place, but good.

We also received one month supply of dialysis liquids in 20 boxes that are not going to fit in my car to take home. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

The next week will consists of alot of training. I consider ourselves intelligent people, I hope it takes less time than what the nurse feels is necessary.

Larry has caught whatever sick I've had for the last week. It was bound to happen. I am his eye seeing pet and theres no way around not having any contact with him when he is dependant. Glad tomorrow is a free day.

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!
