The young and the restless

In most of the wards I stayed in the hospital, I am the youngest patient. There are patients 20 or 30 years older than me but also have similar heart surgery such as valvular repair / replacement or vascular bypass.

What puzzled me a lot is these “older” patients recover very fast (faster than me !), they can walk around the ward and stretch their body just 2 days after the operation.

I reckon may be they are stronger than me (who is 30 years younger) or they really cherish every day they have and they want to go back home early with their kids and grand-kids.

Shall we learn from them as well ? They are old, but restless, and cherish every single day.
