May 5, 2015 Tuesday Noonish

I can not believe it is May already.
My birthday came and went.  Tony and I went out for a nice steak dinner at a great steak house here in Milwaukee.  I have a hard time putting down $42 for a steak, but at least it came with sides.  Seems the new trend is sides you pay for separately.   I also had a $20 coupon so the bill was just over $100.  I shake my head now as I even type that.  What I could spend at the grocery store with that $100.  Although, that is getting less and less also, those that do the grocery shopping know how expensive and smaller everything is getting at the grocery store.  Anyway, the birthday was nice, just wish the years would subtract rather than add.  I am now 54 years old.  I have a hard time accepting it.

I did end up going to the doctor the middle of last week.  My illness turned into another Prostate infection.  I get these twice or more a year lately.  There is no reason I would get these infections over and over.  Of course I am now on an antibiotic again, Cypro. 

It is raining today in Milwaukee and looks to be a very cloudy drizzle filled day.  When it is cloudy like this I have a very hard time starting my brain.  Even went back to bed for an hour or so after Tony went to work this morning with Rose.  Around 11 AM I went and got Rose from work to save Tony the trip at noonish.  Since it was raining it was not like she was going to go for any walks with her Uncle Tom.  At home she has her son and doggie friends.  

This week all the dogs get their nail trims.  Kali went to the vet late yesterday afternoon for a nail trim and anal cleaning.  Bo goes today at 2:30 PM.  Vito on Wednesday at 4 PM.  Rose and Casper this Saturday morning.  Between the vet bills and the Walmart shopping I did yesterday this is turning out to be an expensive week.   Walmart is $75 for the Insulin and syringes alone.  Then another $250 on household items we use.  Thankfully I only go ever few months for Vito's Insulin. 

Up until today the weather here in Milwaukee has been getting .... Summer like.  It was even in the 70s this weekend.  Today it is in the high 40's and then in two days we go back up to 80 degrees.  This time of year Lake Michigan makes a big difference on our weather depending on what way the wind is blowing.  Summer will be here soon enough.  I have gotten most of the work outside I wanted to get done for this Summer already.  I get it done now because later in the Summer it just is too hot for me to work in the yard.  So I get the yard looking nice now so I can spend the rest of the Summer maintaining it and enjoying it.  Glad the pond is gone.  I do miss it but less work is a good thing.  Here is a picture of Rose and Casper in the now fake pond.

Just looked around and all five dogs are sitting on the couches or floor ... looking at me ... like ... daddy, let's do something.  Thankfully they have bones to chew on.
Tony and the dogs are all doing great.  I have to admit I find myself saying 'I am the luckiest guy in the world' many times a day.  As long as I keep my head out of 'dark' thoughts of death and dying or things I can not fix, I am happy.  I honestly still look down at Rose and Casper and smile knowing saving them was the best thing I ever did in my life.  They are both so happy and show it daily.  I have everything a guy could ask for:  OK health (mostly), a roof over my head I own, dogs that love me, a husband who loves me, and family that loves me.  What more can a guy honestly ask for?  I don't need anything else to make me happy than to just have my house, home, and dogs. 


  1. Happy Birthday and I wish you many happy years to come

  2. Happy birthday and many more too! But the best birthday present is a material object it can be advice. Here goes.
    In my opinion some people including our loved ones need to have options when the time comes to go. Dave, you your ailing parents, friends, everybody needs to have a personal choice in living or dying. With that said, there is one book I do recommend. It has been my pardon the expression - bible - for the past twenty four years (living with HIV/AIDS). It's by Derek Humphry,"The FINAL EXIT: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying" get the THIRD updated edition. The book has been a godsend and Derek Humphry well he's quite a remarkable influence in me fighting to stay alive. I can sleep with peace of mind and not go through the worries of being a burden, my friend. Though, I do have one confession. I have never told any of my friends who are in the condition of dying or may die (including parents) for the reason they have to discover them for themselves, but with you I'll make the exception and point you in the right direction to make those choices for yourself. Educate yourself about the process it is paramount, life as well as a good death are personal responsibilities. Speaking from experience. The mounting health problems of HIV/AIDS are dire and so is aging, many of us who are on medications that cost thousands of dollars a month and find that the system that does not make strides into making it easy to heal us with our condition, makes me think why should they continue to profit off me. And I ain't taking like a fish eyed fool. I don't want to get into politicking but "C'est la vie". Happy birthday, again and again and again.

    1. I will look for this book. Thank you. I do want to make sure I 'go' on my own terms and not be a burden or end up with no one to care for me. Thank you.
