February 24th: Minga’s 77th Birthday

Minga had dialysis on her birthday — the Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday schedule is unrelenting. But after, she went to the village where they had a small family party for her. Her eldest daughter Ana is very good about connecting me with Minga by WhatsApp, and I was able to wish my dear friend a happy birthday.

They called me from the car as Minga’s son Angel was driving her, Ana and Mileybus to the village. I thought Minga looked tired — she’d been in dialysis and at the hospital all day — but she said she felt OK. She said she was going to eat cake and sip some of her beloved sweet fruit juice, even though those things are a bit off her kidney-care diet.
