Gee, I hope this never happens to me

This came from one of my dearest friends who’s creeping past 90.
This happened in an Aged Care 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 friend went upstairs and knocked on his door  to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door.  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 horrible 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.
