I must stop wearing that sign that says KICK ME - I'M DOWN ALREADY

Yes, just when you think things couldnt get any worse, your dementia-suffering father goes missing.

The police are releasing a media statement to be broadcast tonight. They're starting a helicopter search of the hills soon. A check of the security video footage of the hardware store he was supposed to go to shows he did not go there at all. His car has not been found. He has not rung for roadside assistance. There have been no car accidents.

We have no idea where he is or what has happened to him.

At this point, I am very scared for his safety. It was freezing last night. He could be wandering around anywhere and have no idea what he's doing. He could get hypothermia. He could have had a stroke, or a heart attack. He could be taken advantage of by unscrupulous people who want his cash, or his car.

I feel so bloody useless. There was more I could do when my cat went missing than there is now.

And more than that, I feel guilty for not taking him to the doctor to get him proper treatment and have his license revoked myself.


  1. I really hope they find him. If you don't object, I will pray for his safe return. You are amazing.

  2. Oh Panda, your Dad is in my prayers. I hope they find him safe and sound soon.

  3. Hope they find him and this turns out ok. I'm rooting for pappa to find his way. Can't blame yourself bella it is in no way your fault. I'll pray to the graven images for his safe return.


Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
