My mom are planning an escape. If they don't do surgery today, we are going to tuck her into a wheelchair and sneak off to the lakefront. What the hell. After weeks here it's time to get outside, have a laugh, and reclaim some control. If you see two wildly cackling women running full-tilt with a wheelchair in front of Northwestern hospital security on Chicago news tonight, it's not a Halloween stunt . . . it's just us.
