"We did not think that this is just the beginning of the tests on our way"

views: 804

My daughter and I have been roaming hospitals for five years. We went home for a day. It is very difficult, of course, both physically and mentally. My daughter Varvara was born prematurely.

She had two strokes and pneumonia. We did not think that this was just the beginning of the tests.

By and large, she did not show any signs. What was there to see, after all? One and a half kilos of baby… And from three months we had problems: cerebral palsy, strabismus, mental retardation. My husband supported us financially, but he died recently. Somehow it was easier together. Now, my mother, God bless her, helps and supports us.

With the beginning of the war, the state did not supply any medicines any longer. The life-saving medicines are provided by the Rinat Akhmetov Humanitarian Center. The medication was not cheap. I wouldn't afford that much. If she needs five or six vials, I would buy only two, maybe. Thanks God, we are being supported, so the child with grow normally..
