Jo the Stair Master
Once we arrived at the office building that Patricia manages, we got to the elevator where we noticed a sign, "Sorry for the inconvenience, Elevator Temporarily Out of Service." Oh great I thought to myself.
I noticed that my mom was walking pretty well and the way she has been dancing lately, I figured walking up five flights of stairs wouldn't be a problem for her. It was raining and I didn't want to walk back to the car so I said excitedly, "Come on Ma, let's find the stairs!"
"Ok." She said as we walked and found the stairwell up to the 5th floor.
She did really well, she walked up the stairs pretty fast for an old lady. You'd never guess that she is 81.
Here's a little bit of a video showing my mom climbing the stairs, mastering them as though she was scaling the highest mountain with ease. My mom continues to prove that it's never too late to take care of yourself no matter how old or sick you think you are. My mom's new nickname is Jo the Stair Master.
