There are two things that never leave Dean Young's side – his mobile phone and an odd-looking machine that resembles a piece of carry-on baggage, replete with tubes and amplified sound. Any day, or week, or month, or – God forbid – year, a call could come in on Young's phone that will send him and his wife flying out the door on the way to free themselves from this peculiar machine, its noise, and its assortment of tubes. . .
. . .Trying to negotiate every daily task with a clunky machine is an enormous hassle. "It's like taking a mower with you, or a vacuum cleaner, wherever you go," Young says, raising his voice slightly above the rhythmic tick-tick of the BiVAD. "You get into bed, you try to bathe, you go to the grocery store – you have to take the vacuum cleaner with you."
He has a humorous, wonderful response to all this, but I can only imagine how hard it must be to go through, for him and his family and friends. Anyway, the article also mentioned his new book has been released--

I will definitely have to check it out as I so enjoyed his book Skid.
