Tuesday the 26th of January
It's getting worse. I lost Petunia again
today but this time it was longer than ever before. I lost her
for a whole day. I am starting to worry if I can look after her
by myself, I think I might need help.
Today I left Petunia watching a program on
the TV while I went outside and got the paper from the paper boy.
I must have only been gone five minutes but when I returned, I
saw that she was no where to be found. As usual, I searched the
house but couldn't find her. Outside there is a large garden that
is filled with small nooks and crannies. It took me a while to
search the whole garden but by the time I had finished I was in a
mad panic as I had not found her yet. I decided that I would need
some extra help on this because it seemed more serious than ever
All our friends and family helped me search
the whole town but we could not find her. After searching all
through the night we finally found her at the edge of the
forest.I had that feeling you get when you lose someone that
you're close too, no matter how small a time they were lost, it
gives you a feeling you can't describe, one of pure worry, guilt,
anger, depression and many more emotions. Thankfully we found
Petunia again and she was safe and sound.
Many people come up to me and give me their
sympathy for myself and my wife, but that doesn't mean anything
to me, what about those who can empathise? Those are the ones I
would like to talk to. Those who understand and have been through
what I am going through.
Lately I have been working alongside my
Son-in-law to modify our house so it is less harmful if she ever
falls over. I don't want things to get any worse than they
