I am so glad that Jim Gaffigan was a good caregiver to his wife, who had a brain tumor. It is very nice of him to put so much effort and care for his wife. But I feel sorry for his wife because she went through this tumor. I understand perfectly how she feels because, unfortunately, I also had a brain tumor, and I thank the people who took care and certainly the specialists from who helped me to escape this tumor. It is very important to have the right people with you in case such things happen.
