Two more treatments of haemo dialysis, then the switch over to peritoneal dialysis. No more driving in Auckland traffic. It is a big deal when you've spent the last year in Bumpkin town, Hawkes Bay where a traffic jam is caused by farmers moving sheep on the main roads. Auckland is nothing near Los Angeles freeway traffic at rush hour.

They keep pushing the date to go home further away. The Renal Specialist wants to see us on the 25th, we hoped to be home by the 24th. How long the education part takes depends on the students. It could take 2 days, it could take 10, all depends on us. It's safe to assume that the tunnel line will come out anytime after the 25th. Below average.

The specialist removed a few drugs from Larrys cocktail.
Awaiting the renal nurse for todays PD training.

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!
