prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

I had one of these today. I had it to have my esophagus stretched.  I have trouble swallowing. This is the fourth time that I have had my esophagus stretched. The first time was in 2002. I have had trouble swallowing for a long time. Stretching might help my swallowing for a while. I do not think that I will go through this again.

John was my driver. We left home at 5:45 am and drove to the VA in Shreveport.

I recognized the row of cots in the get ready room. I was told to take off everything above my waist and put it in a bag. A man down the line was told to take off everything except his socks. I asked the nurse how come. Yes they sometime do both ends in one trip. I hope that they do not get mixed up.
