A story telling that one can be happier being dead than alive
"I did not manage to protect him! And what am I going to tell my husband when I meet him soon in heaven?" – bitterly replies Tatiana, a 70-year-old old woman exhausted by her grief.
Poor thing! She feeds her son with a spoon and a bottle.
And then he needs help in the bathroom, and in many other things. And she is 70 years old already. God help me!
"My little son was born healthy and blooming" – she continued. "I thanked God!" We were so happy!
– What happened?
– Kidneys started hurting. I wanted to take him to the doctor. But he's an adult... Did not listen and went to the witch doctor... and drank her cursed potion! Just a few drops and he fell down on the floor! He fainted. When he regained consciousness, his legs were gone forever.
Which one of us could stand it, friends?! Georgian mothers need monuments in their lifetime!
Edisher's legs are paralyzed, his kidneys are damaged, his liver is enlarged, his whole body is swollen! Oh, what a grief! Could it be worse?! How can we leave them without help?
- Is Edisher's condition improving?
Tatiana Chaava: No. And now I don't know which of us will die first!
Edisher: "I dream to see Dad in heaven, as I have never seen him in my life!"
– Tatiana, when did your husband die?
Tatiana Chaava: Thank you so much for
recalling my husband. My poor Valera, he died in a car accident. I was five
months pregnant at that time. The death of my husband was a big sorrow for me.
You know how it happens? When a bird flies with one wing...
The mother and her son are starving. Edisher needs diet food. That's why he's now grade four obese. Social allowance, 100 lari, is mainly spent on medicines.
– And your pension?
Tatiana Chaava: 4 years ago, when my son's disease began to progress dramatically, I borrowed money and now my pension is spent on this debt.
– Does anyone help you?
Tatiana Chaava: Neighbors help as they can; they are also poor and their help is hardly tangible in material terms, but in moral terms it is a huge support. They come, console me, encourage Edisher, call the ambulance... and here local authorities don't help practically…
– You said "practically." So, they still do help?
Tatiana Chaava: Last year the municipality gave us 100 lari for medicines. Now they want to connect our shack to gas supply, and the state promised to make it free of charge.
The mother and the son live in a wooden barrack. They don't have a bathroom, the floor is about to collapse and the ceiling is leaking.
– When did you build this hut?
Tatiana Chaava: I built this cabin 46 years ago with my own hands. My husband was from the neighboring Gali district of Abkhazia; I lived there for a while, but after his death I decided to return home. I bought this small plot and began to build a house for me and my son.
– I would say that the conditions are terrible.
Tatiana Chaava: Oh, you said it. It is a
nightmare. We have a bathroom in the yard. Recently there was a strong
hurricane and our wooden toilet tent was lifted into the air and blown to
pieces. Now I have no toilet, so I need to go to the neighbors' place.
– Tell me please, why did not you get married once more?
Tatiana Chaava: I loved my husband so much. He was in his second year of law school when the accident happened. When Valera was dying in the hospital, I prayed for a long time and made a vow to God – I will be faithful to him until the end of my days, if only the child in my womb survived, because my stress state gave no hope for it. In the end, God wanted my Edisher to be born. It is the will of God.
– Do you dream about your husband often?
Tatiana Chaava: I dream about him a lot, but my dreams are blurry. And recently, I saw him in a dream, and he said – "Receive guests!" I woke up sweating, and I couldn't even guess which guests he was talking about. After a few hours the door is opened, and there you stand! This was a prophetic dream. Now I know that the good people who will read about us will help my son, and I will pray for them. Now I'll go and light a candle for the health of your readers!
