We tried to do our best to take care of him, with all the sickness that he had, with all the sores that he had.  How we had to take care of him when nobody else was around to take care of him.  And then when he was, like at the places and that, he had sores on his back, where they developed, where we had to clean his sores out.  I was doing it mostly, and my wife couldn’t handle it, but then later on we had to take care of him, because he couldn’t have no bowel movements, or anything.  We had to do that for him, and this now.  We had to clean him out.  So, we had a pretty rough time trying to cope with it, but we handled it pretty good.
