This is what all of you 70+ year old, and yet to be, kids
have to look forward to!!
This is something that happened in an assisted living center
The people who lived there have small apartments but they
all eat at a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents
didn't show up for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door
to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door and
he said that he was running late and would be down shortly so she went back
to the dining area.
An hour later he still hadn't arrived so she went back up towards his room
and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the
stairs but was having a hell of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail
and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told him
she was going to call an ambulance but he told her no, he wasn't in any
pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So she helped him the rest of
the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast.
When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up
even the first step so they called an ambulance for him. A couple hours
later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The receptionist
there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one leg of his
