It's always hard to loose someone you love, and we all need a little extra support when it happens.
Have you ever wandered around a big college campus wearing an ace bandage on your knee, making it hard to bend that joint? Because I have. And it is MISERABLE. Plus the snow has turned to slippery slush, and since I have limited mobility, I'm petrified of falling and actually hurting myself, as opposed to this silly fake-hurt that I still totally expect to be gone by the time I show up at the doctor's tomorrow, though it hurt like crazy when I walked to the shower this morning.
Anyway, yes. Petrified of falling and hurting myself, so I was wearing my snow boots, for the traction, so with my knee mostly mobilized and my ankle almost completely so, that leg was pretty much useless, and I was dragging it around all day. The only thing worse would be crutches, because I'm on the third floor. And there's no elevator. Maritima suggested I take the dumbwaiter if I have issues with stairs, but then we thought about it, and besides the fact that I don't think the dumbwaiter is even turned on except at the beginning and end of the semester to move heavy stuff, I'm pretty sure that would be ridiculously scary. I mean... it's not even approved for humans.... I'm pretty sure I'd be better off risking the stairs.

Hey, that's only like seven years at the lowest possible salary I'll have as a physician!
