School is stressing me out. I'm mere nasal hairs away from giving up because some of this crap is over my head. Like really, what in the hellnoids does probability have to do with giving someone an enema as an RN?

Speaking of RNs, my long days in the hospital with Larry has me thinking nurses irritate me, bar one named Pam, who is the love of my life when it comes to tending to Larry with patience and care.

This is what happens when nurses go on lunch breaks AFTER I told them his lure was coming out. I didn't mean to say the F-word to her because I understand public health, but I've also learned in my study guides that a patient who has been given anticoagulants that has a bloody lure hanging off of his arm is more important than a ham and cheese sandwich.

The babies visited the hospital and here they are laying on the dialysis drain bag that they have named "The Mimi Pillow".
Mimi means pee in maori.

Re: Larry.
It's a collapsed lung.
He's still in hospital to finish his treatment of anti-biotics. Hopefully he is out tomorrow. Being home alone sucks sometimes.

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!
