“That would be a Problem for Anyone, NO matter the Age”

“That would be a Problem for Anyone, NO matter the Age”

 

 

 

 

This is what we who are aged 70 or 80 years plus, can look forward to. This is something that happened at an assisted living center.

The people who lived there had small apartments, but they all ate 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, but found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a hard 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 stair step, so they called an ambulance for him.

A couple of 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 side of his boxer shorts.

I'm sending this to my children so that they don't sell the house before they know all the facts.

Good morning Joe. I will be sending this to my son as a reminder age has consequences. That is when I quit laughing. Enjoy your day!

Hello Joe - okay, I admit I realized(though not from the beginning) that there was going to be a punchline....didn't expect this particular one though.

Good morning Joe Petrowsky - OMG that is so funny.  Things are not as bad as they appear.

I work with a lot of (very) elderly people. This is not as uncommon as it seems - at least these types of situations. Funny - and sad.

That was an unexpected twist but maybe it is not. I will know when I get there.

I'm glad the twist was one to laugh at.
