Terina was brought home with Manaia 4 days later and was told to rest. She has been on crutches for the past 7 weeks, staying on the couch in pain. Terina had her pelvis ripped apart by the doctor during delivery and hurt her pubic bone as well. She has since being home, gotten mastitus and a bladder infection. Needless to say she has been through hell and we are hoping that she will recover soon. The pain medication she has been on since delivering Manaia, has been at times kept her so drowsy and tired, all she has wanted to do most days is sleep. I have been Mr. Mum to the kids and trying to look after Terina - making sure she always gets her pain meds on time and changing every single one of Manaia's dirty bums!
I decided to all my classes online this semester so i can be at home to help. It has worked out pretty well so far and Terina is getting plenty of rest, venturing outside in her wheelchair, maybe once a week or so to smell the fresh air.
We have appreciated the ward and all the meals they have brought to us and the well wishes of everyone. We have felt everyones prayers for us and the love and hope that one day we may be able to repay everyone for their service. Even it has been hard for my wife to accept the charity and service at times. We love you all - Thank you..

I had to Stay in for 4 days, I was then able to go home and landed back in hospital less than 48hrs later. Stayed over night then and because it all settled down and I promised the Doctors that I will do absolutely nothing! I was let go again on the condition that I stay on Bedrest, so I had 13weeks till my due date when this all started and now I have only 8.5 weeks to go.
Thank you to everyone who has helped out with my family and I, with dinners and babysitting and coming to visit me. I am grateful to you all.
Thank you to my husband who has had to do alot and for looking after us all!

I cant eat much at all so I am only able to drink Sparkling water (Fizzy water) yes I know yum!!! Ritz biscuits are my friend and Tomatoes with Salt, actually this week I was able to eat a cup of Pineapples Yay!!!!!! Still not being able to eat sucks and not being able to keep it down is just as sucky, and I hate wasting food, I have asked Cam a couple of times for different things only to have half a mouthful and then give my entire dinner to him. I think he secretly enjoys that.
What a way to loose weight!!!! All in all we are very happy we are expecting another child and the kids are really excited. Lets hope I can teach this one to have a kiwi accent and keep it yeah! Well we will see!!!!!

Here are a few pics that I took on the night.
maybe 6 -7yrs.
Cam and I don't buy each other presents.
I think I love seeing my kids happy and enjoy Christmas through the eyes of my Children,
In light of the worlds turmoil I am definitely grateful to have a home, to have a family near and far to give my life meaning, to have food and clothing to meet my needs, to have the Gospel to enrich my life, to have friends that bring joy and fun in my life, to have Children to bring a smile on my face and warm my heart and to have a husband to love me back even when I don't deserve it. I do have my own Christmas list which is so much more than money and gifts and shopping and Santa, That I will still have my Mum and my Dad this time next year, My family friends and myself will stay healthy and strong, that we will have peace and that everyone will have a friend and not be lonely, No more war and right will always prevail.
I hope you all are blessed with the things I have on my Christmas list

P.S Terina strightened Tyla Jade's hair the same day as she was getting ready to go to Vegas. TJ loved it and was showing it off in the photos. Strange seeing her without her gollywog locks!

PS: We are sitting here with Hayden and he is reading what I wrote and he has started balling his eyes out saying " I'm so sad mum" and he is trying to convince me that frog legs are yucky. He cried especially hard when he read the part about me cooking the frogs legs! Oh my poor son. Now I'm having tears roll down my cheeks seeing him cry! What the freak is going on! My Goodness!
