Kaiser Visit

Yesterday, Danny and his wife drove me to the Kaiser facility where an efficient female doctor cleaned out my ears.

They were loaded with wax. The procedure was a “bit painful” but I expected it would be.

I gritted my teeth. Was I happy to hear the words, “Morrie, that’s it.”

Perhaps now I will be able to understand what people are saying to me.


My visit to Kaiser helped my hearing very little….Sure wish I could hear better, but I get along just fine.


Steve visited today. He usually puts a pair of amplifiers on me.

He didn’t today.

We spent a pleasant lunch hour eating corned beef pastrami, and a side order of dill pickles, from Canter’s.

I wore no hearing aids. 

Only a few times did I ask him to repeat what he said to me.

I am long reconciled to my loss of hearing. I manage well.

To the rest of my limited days, I will continue doing what I am doing.

Have a good day.
