I've said it too many times already, but I'll say it again. Age is a state of mind. I took care of a lady today who is 90. Breath sounds clear as a bell. Oxygen sats of 95% on room air. She came in because she had been feeling weak... For over a year. She was pissed cuz all her docs kept telling here was "Well, you're old." Her response "But I want to play golf, and I don't have the energy."
Well, we found a very slow GI bleed today. Odds are we'll get that fixed and she'll be back to golfing in less than a week. Yay for old people who still rock out! (Except for the Stones' half-time show. That was just creepy.)
