Talking What seniors have to look forward to

(Got this from my older sister)

What seniors have to look forward to!

This is what all of us: 70+, other seniors, and kids (south of 60)
have to look forward to!! This is something that happened at 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 boxer shorts.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
