The Willamette River – Downtown Portland

Dateline: Portland, Oregon –

This is the last update from Portland. I shall be heading back to Seattle tomorrow and will be there for a few days before returning to Alabama. Today wasn’t terribly exciting. A bit of a repeat of yesterday. Breakfast, Uber to the convention center, meetings until mid afternoon, a nap and then a dinner meeting celebrating that my colleague, Kellie Flood, was named the American Geriatrics Society’s clinician of the year.

Today was definitely old home week as I ran into all sorts of colleagues from my past at various points. Deborah FrancisCaroline StephensCalvin H Hirsch, Tomas Griebling, Holly Richter, Karen Miller and more. The sessions were fine with occasional nuggets of good information among the academic double speak. I spent some of my down time jotting some notes for what’s going to become an essay or a book chapter on how the US health system isn’t ready for what’s about to happen to it as the boom continues to age. I was going to work on it more tonight but two Tom Collinses have put paid to that idea.

Kellie’s party was held in a sports bar across the street from the convention center. I arrived to find it jam packed with Millennials in red and black getting ready to cheer on the Blazers. We were in a private space in a sort of loft but the combination of the UAB Geriatrics folks against the rowdy and somewhat tipsy young people made me feel like I had wandered onto the set of some film I didn’t especially want to see. The drinks were decent, the food was edible (other than the quinoa salad – that was a mistake on someone’s part), and it was nice to chat up some people I hadn’t seen for a while. Now I’m back at the hotel and rewatching The Battle of Winterfell on Game of Thrones. I’ve turned the brightness on the hotel TV ways up and, with that, it’s possible to see everything fairly clearly.

Can’t think of a good story at the moment and the cocktails are fogging my brain so I’m going to sign off now. More musings to come later.

Have you thought of the effect baby boomers will have on our society as we age out? Andrew Duxbury is at a gerontology conference and I hope he’ll write more about what he is hearing there. Here’s what he wrote at thd end of his last post:

I wish I could think of something truly exciting that happened at an AGS meeting, but I can’t. They tend to follow a pattern. Lectures, plenary symposia, posters, exhibit hall, catch up with colleagues in a see and be seen way. My big takeaway from this one is that American society is in no way ready for the demographic changes that are going to hit in another decade as the boom enters its 80s. Thank god I’ll be retiring. I don’t want to be the one who has to cope.

Dateline: Portland, Oregon

I got myself up this morning, poured coffee down my throat and hopped an Uber from my hotel to the Oregon Convention Center for the annual meeting of the American Geriatrics Society. I used to attend it pretty much every year, but as my career has wandered off the fast track of academic prominence over the last twenty years, it’s become less of a priority in life and I don’t think I’d been for at least a decade.

A year ago tonight. It was warm. I had stayed with Tommy at the hospital until after ten. We watched a couple of episodes of the Great British Baking show and then I helped the nurse with his bed bath. He complained how I was doing it wrong. It was a familiar refrain. He loved to hold up how impractical my physician’s training was when compared to his nursing training. I never won those arguments and had learned long ago to tune him out when he was in that mode.

Dateline: Portland, Oregon –

This is the last update from Portland. I shall be heading back to Seattle tomorrow and will be there for a few days before returning to Alabama. Today wasn’t terribly exciting. A bit of a repeat of yesterday. Breakfast, Uber to the convention center, meetings until mid afternoon, a nap and then a dinner meeting celebrating that my colleague, Kellie Flood, was named the American Geriatrics Society’s clinician of the year.

Today was definitely old home week as I ran into all sorts of colleagues from my past at various points. Deborah FrancisCaroline StephensCalvin H Hirsch, Tomas Griebling, Holly Richter, Karen Miller and more. The sessions were fine with occasional nuggets of good information among the academic double speak. I spent some of my down time jotting some notes for what’s going to become an essay or a book chapter on how the US health system isn’t ready for what’s about to happen to it as the boom continues to age. I was going to work on it more tonight but two Tom Collinses have put paid to that idea.

Kellie’s party was held in a sports bar across the street from the convention center. I arrived to find it jam packed with Millennials in red and black getting ready to cheer on the Blazers. We were in a private space in a sort of loft but the combination of the UAB Geriatrics folks against the rowdy and somewhat tipsy young people made me feel like I had wandered onto the set of some film I didn’t especially want to see. The drinks were decent, the food was edible (other than the quinoa salad – that was a mistake on someone’s part), and it was nice to chat up some people I hadn’t seen for a while. Now I’m back at the hotel and rewatching The Battle of Winterfell on Game of Thrones. I’ve turned the brightness on the hotel TV ways up and, with that, it’s possible to see everything fairly clearly.

Can’t think of a good story at the moment and the cocktails are fogging my brain so I’m going to sign off now. More musings to come later.28DeNay Porter Kirkpatrick, Michael Schell and 26 others3 CommentsLikeCommentShare

Have you thought of the effect baby boomers will have on our society as we age out? Andrew Duxbury is at a gerontology conference and I hope he’ll write more about what he is hearing there. Here’s what he wrote at thd end of his last post:

I wish I could think of something truly exciting that happened at an AGS meeting, but I can’t. They tend to follow a pattern. Lectures, plenary symposia, posters, exhibit hall, catch up with colleagues in a see and be seen way. My big takeaway from this one is that American society is in no way ready for the demographic changes that are going to hit in another decade as the boom enters its 80s. Thank god I’ll be retiring. I don’t want to be the one who has to cope.

I am somewhat overwhelmed by the responses to my post on the first anniversary of Tommy‘s passing. People have been messaging and calling and texting to check on me. You are all part of my village and I am grateful for each and every one of you. It’s been a bit of an emotional rough patch but I’m doing OK. I leave for the west coast on Wednesday and I’ll start my travelogues and anecdotes at that point.231DeNay Porter Kirkpatrick, Michael Schell and 229 others36 CommentsLikeCommentShare

After 3.5 years, today’s my last day at Trader Joe’s. Bittersweet.

Andrew Duxbury, know that I’m writing as my job now (what I wanted to do for 30 years) largely because of decisions I made after Tommy’s service this time last year.

A year ago tonight. It was warm. I had stayed with Tommy at the hospital until after ten. We watched a couple of episodes of the Great British Baking show and then I helped the nurse with his bed bath. He complained how I was doing it wrong. It was a familiar refrain. He loved to hold up how impractical my physician’s training was when compared to his nursing training. I never won those arguments and had learned long ago to tune him out when he was in that mode.
