"I say to myslef now, you know, I’m very fortunate, because even though I have to call a machine my friend and, and depend on it three times a week, a-at least I can say to myself I can go to Toronto this weekend, I can go to Toronto this weekend, and visit my daughter, or I can get my boat and and go fishing. I-I know darn well that as long as I look after myself, feed myself properly, look after my intake, my food and drink, and.. and have a visit with the machine of course three times a week, then I’m going to be able to do these things and lead a normal life."
