Trebek said, "Yesterday morning my wife came to me and said, ‘How are you feeling?’ And I said, ‘I feel like I want to die.’ It was that bad."
Alex added, "There comes a time where you have to make a decision as to whether you want to continue with such a low quality of life, or whether you want to just ease yourself into the next level. It doesn’t bother me in the least."
But we must give to the man, his spirit is beyond any words, Despite the difficulties, Trebek is back at hosting the show, and he admitted the show actually helped him recover.
