It was five years ago today, also a Wednesday, that we found out about my mother’s pancreatic cancer diagnosis. She called me in the car as I was driving home from work, to say that she and my father were coming over, to discuss the results of her biopsy, so of course I knew because she wouldn’t say right then.
She lived about 4 more months, until April 13, 2008.
The photo is from 1996, when I was in my “Lucy” tee-shirt painting biz (meaning the supplies cost more than any profits). Sharon was 3, Diane was almost 6, Mom was 65. I hadn’t gone on the Internet yet.
