I’m giving close updates on Minga because many of my regular readers have been in Panama and have met her — and care about her.
She is in the hospital in Anton, which is the next larger town up the highway from Rio Hato. There is a hospital of sorts in Penonome, although anything critical gets sent to Panama City. I’m not sure what Lily means by “hospital in Anton”. There is a larger clinic there than in Rio Hato, but I’m not thinking they can do much. Her doctor is running tests and is going to be in contact with Minga’s nephrologist. There is some chance that she simply has a virus, although it seems more likely that she is suffering from a worsening of her kidney failure.
I have commitments here that would make it very difficult for me to get to Panama for a few days any time before mid-October. I’m hoping Minga can be stabilized. I’m hoping we can have one last semi-normal visit in January, although that may be asking too much.
