“I bow down to all the mothers who sacrifice themselves for their child!” Sophia, the boy's mom!
The scoundrel husband abandoned the beautiful 20-year-old Sofia as soon as he found out that his son, Giorgi, was infected with a deadly disease in the hospital!
Now he pays 100 lari in alimony and lives for his pleasure! The mother dedicated the best years of her life to her child. Love knows no boundaries! Self-sacrifice! Only mothers know what that is!
Giorgi was born premature and developed sepsis due to the negligence of doctors, which affected the baby's brain. Because of the infection!
The doctors said he wouldn't survive. But the Lord protected the boy. Then he was almost at death's door three times, but by the prayers of Sofia, God brought him back to life three times!
Giorgi is doomed. His illness is incurable. His mother knows that her son will never get better and fights with all her might to keep him from getting worse."
Sofia: My pregnancy and childbirth went well. I gave birth to a healthy boy. On the second day, he became ill. He developed sepsis, and the infection spread throughout his body, damaging his brain. He spent three months in an intensive care unit, and the doctors fought for his life. It was a big blow for me. I remember those days, all my feelings and prayers, in which I turned to God to give me strength to help my son.
- How do you manage to cope with a sick child alone?
Sofia: It's very hard both financially and physically. My husband didn't want a sick child, and he left me alone when I was 20 years old. If it weren't for my parents, I wouldn't have been able to cope. I bow down to all the mothers who raise severely ill children alone, without any external help. Almost all men run away from such a burden. It's very hard. Now he has another family, and he doesn't have time for Giorgi, let him be happy. Let's not talk about him. I have my mother, and she is my angel. She got a job as a cleaner to support me financially because the pension and allowance are barely enough for food. Giorgi still needs medical supplies like suction catheters, feeding tubes, and we still have to pay for our apartment. God, give me strength.
- Do you have your own house?
Sofia: I'm originally from Abastumani, my mother lives there, but now because of Gio's illness exacerbation, we can't stay there due to the climate. In September 2021, the baby got infected with COVID-19. It was terrible. He can't even catch a cold, and he managed to catch this terrible disease! Giorgi barely survived. He was in the intensive care unit for a month and a half, with no chance of surviving. But Giorgi survived. When they discharged him from the hospital and I brought him home, he began to suffocate, turn blue, and roll his eyes. I was losing him! I was losing a son who barely survived. I called an ambulance, and they took him back to the hospital. Once again, the doctors did the impossible and brought him back from the brink. It turned out that after the virus, his immunity weakened, and he couldn't tolerate mountain air. The doctors sternly warned us to stay in Tbilisi and be near the hospital. When Giorgi's condition worsens, every minute counts!
- It's scary to even imagine what you had to go through.
Sofia: Not me, but my martyr had to go through it. After COVID-19, he couldn't even eat. Food constantly went into his lungs. Then the doctors put a nasogastric tube, and I fed him through his nose... and now he has tubes sticking out of his stomach. He really loved to eat, and it was very hard for him to get used to the fact that he wouldn't be able to eat through his mouth anymore. He cried so much... we had to give him a sedative and take him to a psychologist.
- What is his condition today?
Sofia: You know, when you give birth to a sick child, you don't think about what will happen next, how you will live on. The main thing is for him to live... you live only for today. And every day is a gift. I look at him and think that he would have been a cheerful boy if he hadn't been sick. You know how he sometimes smiles at me, how he loves it when I cuddle and sing to him. He can explain everything with just one sound. When he wants to hug - he screams "maaa", when he wants to eat - "amaama".
- What do you need the most right now?
Sofia: Just look at him, he's smiling, so he's not in any pain. He can't even live for a second without me. He needs to have the mucus from his lungs suctioned. He needs constant talking to - when I say to him, 'who's my handsome boy,' Gio makes sounds. He needs an expensive examination, and the tubes in his stomach need to be changed. He also needs a special wheelchair.
- I noticed that all this time he did not let the giraffe out of his hands!
Sofia: You are right - this giraffe is his favorite toy. He always has it with him, at home and in the ICU. Giorgi will never have school friends, but this toy is everything to him!
