All is well, all is well.

Possible surgery on Friday. If not, we have the go ahead to go home 'for sanity reasons', so says the Doctor. Everything's crossed at this point for going home.

APD is going well. Larrys weight is currently sitting at 113.2kgs and that's with 2 liters of fluid on board. 1 liter of fluid = 1kg. Without the fluid he is 111kgs - this is his target weight. Good times.

Without going into detail, it seems there may still be some activity from the kidneys.

What I've learned from having a husband near his death bed, and going through all the motions (and emotions) to be his avid supporter, is that everything going on around us is all superficial to what we are living. In the last year or so since we've been in NZ, I've been as sad as I will ever need to be for the rest of my life. We have learned how to build bridges to bypass the issues going on around us to avoid walking through them. We have bigger fish to fry, in other words.

<--- it's kinda been like that.

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!
