They will bury my grandson with me on the same day

"If I die today, my grandson will die tomorrow, or maybe he will be buried alive with me, because nobody wants him but me! Nobody wants him... his mother left him, and his father left him. They left their sick child and found happiness elsewhere" - says Malardo and hides her eyes. She is ashamed for Soso’s mother and the father. Who needs a sick man? And they are still young, they can give birth to new and healthy children!
- Malardo, how did it happen? When the parents abandoned your grandson?
Malardo: I can't say they abandoned him, but you know what life is like? It happened like that. I'm not judging anybody, either my son-in-law or my daughter - it's their choice. But I couldn't abandon my child like that. Soso was born a healthy child, he even went to school for 5 years. To be honest it was hard for him to study, I sat by him and we studied together. He barely learned the alphabet and numbers.
- So he's been living with you since birth?
Malardo: When he was 6 years old, my daughter went to Greece to work. She had problems with the law there because, at that time, people went there to work without documents. It wasn’t for the good times, let me tell you. So as not to bore you with a long story, I will tell you briefly: she could not leave that country for 7 years. When she finally managed to come back, she was in for a "big surprise”. Her husband already had another family and a child! She could not bear the shame, and whether to spite him or for love, she soon got married too. No one remembered the child, Soso. So I was left alone with him. When Soso was little, it was easier for me to cope. He walked on his own, I was even able to take him to school for 5 years! But as the years went by, his condition became more and more unbearable, and I wasn't getting any younger. Now I'm an infirm old lady and he's a grown man.
"It's very hard for me to keep Soso clean with my twisted hands"
- It must be very hard for you, how do you manage to cope?
Malardo: My legs can't hold me at all anymore. And I have to change his diapers several times a day, wash him, clean him, feed him, put ointment on his back to prevent bedsores. I put a pillow under his back so he can sit down and wash him right in bed, and feed him, then I change the sheets...
- Does Soso realize his condition?
Malardo: He does not. His condition got worse after a covid. The year before last, his mother took him to her place for a few weeks. I was sick and couldn't look after him. Apparently, they didn't take proper care of him, and Soso got a covid. When I brought him back, he was covered with sores. He couldn't talk and think, his seizures became more severe and more frequent. I barely nursed him, barely healed all his wounds...But I did not manage to bring him to the condition when he was able to sit and walk independently. One year ago, during a severe attack of epilepsy, Soso collapsed and broke his arm. His bones shattered. Now he can't move his arms.
Sometimes he gets aggressive and can hit his grandmother
- What was he like before he got covid?
Malardo: I used to read him books, we watched TV together. I told him: "Look, this is our president, and this actress' name is Nana, and this one is Otar." And the next time he recognized them. Those were the quiet days. And sometimes it seems as something gets into him. He has seizures, outbursts of violence. He starts screaming, grabs me by the hair and hits me - sometimes very hard. But how could I resent him? He doesn't realize what he is doing. And now I put his childhood toys next to him. I sit next to him and play with him like he is baby - he's happy. That's my whole life. Sometimes, when it is very hard to me, I ask God: "Do I really deserve such old age? Why did He give me such a trial? I don't mean it's physically hard to me, it breaks just my heart. Do you know how happy I was?
Once upon a time Malardo was a happy woman, too
- Please, tell us about your youth.
Malardo: I had a wonderful childhood. I was the youngest child in the family - the sixth one! Can you imagine how much they loved me? My mom and dad loved me, my brothers and sister adored me. We had a very friendly family. My parents were hard-working peasants, and their aim was to educate all their children. We all graduated from universities and worked in our professions. I was a schoolteacher for 30 years. I loved my job, and the children loved me. Now I realize that I lived like in a fairy tale. And my husband was wonderful. We loved each other very much, and we had good children - daughter and son. But it was like someone cursed us and everything went wrong. I buried my parents, all my siblings, my husband, and my youngest son. And my daughter...my daughter abandoned her child!
"I will nurse my Soso until God takes me away"
- Oh my God! One should have nerves of steel to go through that and remain such a kind and sweet person! How do you manage to? You haven't uttered even one unkind word.
Malardo: How can I blame anyone? Who can I blame? My daughter? My son-in-law? Soso, because he was born sick? God? It is my cross, and I bear it. The main thing is not to lose face. I think the happiness I accumulated as a child supports me now. I also have no right to die while Soso is alive. What will happen to him when I die? Who will know? He won't be able to dial to anyone. And he won't be able to call anyone. And when they find me dead in a day or two, my grandson will probably be gone by then... When I imagine this terrible picture, I say to myself: come on, Malardo, you have to get up, you have no other choice. Sometimes I wish my grandson had died a day before me. So that I wouldn't take my worries about him to my grave, that he was left alone - sick and discarded like a broken toy.
"An 80-year-old grandmother keeps her grandson so clean. God bless her"
- Malardo, how can we make your life easier?
Malardo: All the gold in the world can't improve my grandson's health, nor can make me strong and young. But I have one very big dream. I need a comfortable bed for my grandson. He does not feel comfortable lying on this old wreck, and it is hard to me. We also need diapers and hygiene products, medication. And we buy food with our pension - it is enough for that!
