I was caring for an elderly patient who was quite debilitated and dependent on others for the majority of her ADL’s. She was hospitalized with pneumonia and relatively uncomfortable. I told her that I was sorry she was feeling so poorly. She replied “It’s hell getting old.” She then smiled at me with that big toothless grin and continued “but it sure was fun getting there.” I wish all of my patients had that attitude. 🙂
