Pancreas Cancer

My mom's 'public moment' was posted 02/28/2003 06:48 pm by Shirley

When my mom was released from the hospital, we had a four-hour drive to get her home. She had not been allowed to eat for 7 of the 10 days she was in the hospital because of pancreatitis and the tests. She was exhausted.

About lunchtime, I asked what she was hungry for. Without hesitation, she said 'A Steak 'N Shake' hamburger. We were in the parking lot when she said she needed to take her shot (she's diabetic). I suggested that we could take the stuff to the ladies room. My very proper, shy, dignified, and ladylike (a real girly-girl) mom said, 'Nope, I'll just do it here'.

To make a long story short, Mom pulled up her sweater and pulled down the front of her pants just as three men walked up to the car next to us and got in. Mom's comment, 'Well, I'm sure they've surely seen a woman's tummy before'!!! I told her if she wasn't careful, they'd be following her home. I started to visualize the headlines: 'Woman arrested for 'flashing'; daughter jailed as an accomplice'.

I was personally very relieved and grateful that they were LEAVING the restaurant and not ARRIVING for lunch!
