05/11/2005 - The "O" Ring


J___ X___ came over on short notice on a crazy Wednesday.

She was anxious to do as much work as possible since next week she's going into the hospital to begin wearing a heart monitor for a few weeks.

As she describes it there has been a small plastic 'O' in her heart since when she was 15 months old. This is holding one of her heart valves open.

The doctors are concerned about it wearing out.

She bears herself like a Queen.

Her voice is quiet. But it is impossible not to understand what she says.

She pauses, as if listening for a distant star.
