Minga is building her life around the very intrusive dialysis 3x weekly. Part of that is being able to talk about things she wants to talk about and having someone listen. She wants a break from matters connected with dialysis. She wants a break from being a kidney failure patient.
Yesterday at breakfast she recounted to me in great detail a TV movie she’d seen about the Passion of Christ — who knows when. She recounted every bit of the plot — remember that she doesn’t read, so film has great power for her. She held my hand the whole time. I have no idea why she wanted to tell me about the Passion of Christ, but I listened to every word.
