Is anyone besides me freezing??? Yet I still leave my bedroom window open, but my electric blanky is on high! Thats one of the things I love about winter. I could almost wear gloves to bed, its that cold!
We took Mom to the Dr. yesterday for a check up. Our Dr. is only 35, and he is a cutie. He teases Mom and she just beams. He gave her a hug yesterday and she was in 7th heaven. The only problem is he is on the 7 th floor, which means I have to walk 7 flights of steps because I wont ride the elevator. Larry takes Mom up on the elevator, gets her sat down and signed in, then he checks in the stairwell to see my progress...lol. Yesterday I was on the 6th floor when he came into the stairwell. I figure its good exercise. I told him ( the Doc) when I couldnt make the steps anymore he could just come down and treat me in the car...he laughed! I didnt. You would think after all those hospital stays last year I would be used to the elevators....nope, not me. Most of the times I was in them I was knocked out. If I was awake I kept my eyes shut and I prayed. Has anyone ever got stuck in an elevator? I think I would flip out if I did, I just wonder what people actually do who get stuck in them.....anyone know?

My mother loved elevators but wouldn't go near an escalator. Everybody is different.

What a cute story about your doctor...is he married? ;-)

Getting stuck in an elevator, I always think of the movie 'You've got Mail'...I'd probably sit down & contemplate life. After calling for help of course!

My wife is terrified of elevators. I jump up and down and have fun.

One day she will kill me in my sleep.

It is good that your mom has a good relationship with her doctor. That is very important. And it is cold here in Houston.Jeez.

5 below this morning-I am so happy I do not have to go out-
It sure makes things flow better if the docs are kind to our loved ones, but who wouldn't love YOUR MOM! I have to take elevators because of my son's wheelchair. I do think about getting stuck, but what cha gonna do. The escalators freak me out, I stand there thinking jump on that step..jump on...then the step disappears and I gotta try again.
You sure have the bestest Indian Chief helping with your mom, a magic bullet, a ring, earrings!!
Your cup runnith over!

Catch,
They wait to be resued.
Yesterday I got on the elevator n the lobby level and pushed the 2 button. The door closed but the elevator didn't move. So I pushed the 1 button. It lit up and the elevator rose to the first floor. Again I pushed the 2 button. The door closed but the elevator didn't move. I then pushed the 3 button. It didn't light up and the elevator didn't move. I pushed the lobby button. The button lit up and the elevator returned to the lobby level. The door opened, rel exited and went up the stairs.
