I wonder about Minga’s quality of life on dialysis, but here she is in the midst of her city family.
From left: Daira in the hat, Manuel in yellow shirt, Jari behind holding Joelito, Mama Ita in red shirt, Abuela Minga, not sure who person in straw hat is, then Jennifer, who actually lives in Rio Hato. In front is Ita’s eldest daughter, Janelys, with her two boys Christian and Sebastian. She and her U.S. husband have apparently split, and she returned to Panama with the boys and is living with Ita. [Ita is the mother of the four Jaris: Janelys, Jarelys, Jarinelys, and Jarineilys.]
I think Minga looks tired. But she is up and dressed, and they are clearly out somewhere sharing family time. Looks as if her hair has been done, and she looks fully present with the group. She’s not smiling but everyone else is, and I think they are very glad to have her there.
