There isn't anything that can be done to solve it, unfortunately. It's just fucked and she has to live with it. She has to watch her diet in a big way and just hope she has no further attacks. It's just ridiculous how her diet has been absolutely slashed. I don't know how she copes.
My brother's a Type 1 Diabetic, so his pancreas doesn't function. He takes insulin shots about five times a day. Anything like that going to happen?

Fair enough. The only reason why state schools work here is because nobody's stupid enough to majorly screw with the way they're already running, I reckon. And if they do, they get pwnd or ignored.

At this stage, not yet. There is very little that can actually treat pancreatitis. She simply has to watch her diet and in theory shouldn't have an attack. In practice, she has to stay within four hours of a hospital in case of one.

The guitar on the live Moonage Daydream kicks so much ass. I can play that better than I can play the acoustic version you heard.

Hmmm...that's really a shame. That does eliminate a huge amount ... all food with carbs, really.

Perhaps. You certainly would have sounded much more awesome plugged in.

I remember doing a Rebel Rebel cover a while back, but it was terrible. Should try that again.

I was so proud of myself when I learned Rebel Rebel. It's such a fun song.

I can't do Golden Years. I'm not good enough. Wish I could, as it's funk-tastic.

Pretty much all dairy is out, which is a real shame because I cook and bake because of her, but almost all of the stuff I cook and bake has too much dairy for her to be able to eat it!

Her diet is so bland now. She's been a cook all her life, sometimes done it professionally and even appeared on a couple of cooking shows on Kiwi TV, and now she's having trouble finding food that keeps her interested.

Bring me up to speed, because I honestly haven't been paying attention...what, exactly, is wrong with your mother?

Actually, my amp's sound is perfect for what Ronson has going there. It's just a matter of getting my amp on the second floor when no one's home.
