An elderly woman visited her doctor of a yearly check-up only to find out she had a slight heart problem that needed to be cared for immediately.

The doctor then prescribed her medicine, which she was to take for two weeks before returning to the hospital for a follow-up. He added:

“Most importantly of all, don’t climb any stairs.”

The old patient then pointed out that she lived in a two-story house and used the stairs daily. However, the doctor warned her again not to climb any stairs for her health benefit.

Two weeks passed, and the elderly woman returned to the doctor for another check-up. The looked at her vital signs and pronounced her cleared and healthy once again. 


She then asked if she could climb stairs once again, to which the doctor said that it was perfectly fine now that her heart problem was addressed. The patient replied:

"Good, because I was getting tired of climbing up that drainpipe every night.”


In another room at the hospital, a woman watched over her husband as he has been in a coma for months. Every day she stayed by him until the day he woke.


The man looked around and saw his wife fixing her things. He then gestured for her to come close then he whispered with teary eyes:

“You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right there. When my health started failing, you were still by my side.”


The man paused, and in those seconds, his wife gently smiled as her heart was filled with love. She then told her husband to continue, to which he said:

“I think you’re bad luck, get the heck away from me!”
