Baba’s Varenyky – A Story Of Love And Resilience
Before I jump into the challenge I thought it’d be best to add a few notes for context. Baba means grandmother in Ukrainian and varenyky is a type of Ukrainian dumpling that can be served savoury or sweet, depending on the filling. If you’re unfamiliar with varenyky, you may have tried Polish pierogi? To the best of my knowledge, they’re essentially the same thing. What I am certain of though, is that after 30+ years of taste testing, I’ve never met a varenyky or pierogi I didn’t like.
“Here’s your mommy!” My mom said as I entered our apartment, handing me my 4-month-old baby and shaking off her hands as if she just carried around a ton of bricks.
Ana's Love Shake
It was one warm summer afternoon in July 2013. I was lying in my hospital bed, just finished with recieving 5 out of 6 chemo while I was curing myself from cancer. Considering it was "washing period" and my immunity went down I could eat everything I wanted expect fresh fruit. When your immunity is down fresh fruit can cause nose bleeding. I knew that after recieving a chemo I could not eat properly beacuse of canker soures in my mouth. My body desperately wanted to drink banana shake with honey so I called my friend Ana to make it and brough to me in Hospital. I completely forgot that bananas are fresh fruit 😂, beacuse my wish for shake was bigger than wish for any other kind of food at the moment. Ana immediately made it for me and brought it to me at the Hospital. She made an enormous banana shake with honey only for me. I knew immediately that she loved and carried about me. I drank it in the blink of eye. It was sooo good and sooo deliciuos. So tasty, sweet made with love. My body needed that shake full of fibre. But, as I completely forgot that it contained fresh bananas my nose started bleeding after 30 minutes and stopped for several hours. Ana was worried, but I told her there is no reason to worry. Doctor and nurse came in my room and put something in my nose to stop the bleeding. After that afternoon everything was fine. As I told her. One month after that I was completely cancer-free Thans to Dear God. Even my diagnosis was so bad in the begining, beacuse I had metastase, everything turend good on the end. I completely healed at the end. I never returned to Hospital again. That is the reason to be very grateful for. Always appreciate your real friend. Those who helped you when no one else did. Good frineds are much more worth than gold. Always be someone light of Hope in the darkness of its life. Never judge or underestimate anyone, especially not that one you love. And remeber: Love save the world. I hope this story will help someone who is now in same, similar or any other kind of difficult situation. Know that everything passes but good friends remain.
