Bless her

In Brad Gooch’s 2010 biography of O’Connor, he reports that Regina (Flannery's mother) initially kept Flannery’s lupus diagnosis from her—Flannery found out she had the disease only after a friend let the secret slip. “Don’t ever tell Regina you told me,” Flannery told the friend. “Because if you do she will never tell you anything else. I might want to know something else sometime.”
