My husband Jim and my two boys are locked inside a underground bunker... we're running out of supplies we only have enough for about two days... one of us has to go up and scavenge. There are mutated people all around us.

August 18, 2004.

We here noises at night, not the sounds of the infected we know what they sound like this is a new sound. It almost sounds like something paranormal... were not sure yet we havnt checked, I'm afraid to go out at night... I'm waiting till morning Jim is going out of the bunker for the first time for supplies...GOD I hope he makes it back alright.

Jim has been gone for about four hours. It's getting hard to keep lying to the kids telling them that they're father will return. I feel the worse has happened and I don't think he is returning...Why me God?...

It's about 5:30 Jim still isn't back, I am extremely worried Know. This was a bad idea. If he doesn't return soon I may have to go look for him.

Jim returned to the bunker at about seven thirty pm. He had blood all over him. He swears it is the blood of a mutant that he killed, but he had no weapons on him when he left? How did he kill one? And why didn't he bring the weapon back here for our protection? Jim has a wound he is not telling us about.

Jim is sweating a lot and is very tired all the time. In fact something as simple as picking up a toy car that fell on the floor and handing it too Rodger our son made him exhausted. Things arnt  going good. I sat up and pulled my husbands pant leg up to review a wound.

August 21st, 2004

Jim swears he is alright but we know he is dying. Tonight we will have Jim with us for his final meal, I feel like he will be dead before morning. I will have to tell the kids....I hope they can take this better than I can.

Jim is now dead. And Rodger is wondering why his dad won't wake up. Steve our teenager knows what happened and is trying to keep Rodger from knowing the truth says "He's just in a very deep sleep."

We cannot stay at this bunker anymore we need to leave. There is a car outside once we can get to it we can leave. There had to be a better place to stay...there has to be a home out there somewhere right?
