KAIETEUR NEWS (GUYANA) - An 87-year-old woman who spent sleepless nights selling elastic in the city to ensure that her son had a comfortable life yesterday revealed how her only child repaid her. Cybil Smith of Lot 278 West Ruimveldt, spoke about how her grandchildren threw water on her in the middle of the night while she was asleep and her son did nothing to help his mother. \u201cI does sleep on the floor and when they (grandchildren and daughter-in-law) passing, they kicking me and then, they does throw water on me while I am sleeping and say that I am stink,\u201d the elderly woman claimed. The woman said that she wholeheartedly accepted her son\u2019s family into her home and they threw her out. \u201cThey put me to sleep next to the dog outside and when the rain falls, my whole skin does get wet. Rashes coming out on my skin because of the dog I am sleeping next to,\u201d Smith said. The woman added that she was living in Alberttown but was forced to move when the house she was living in, was given to someone else. \u201cI searched and I searched for a place until I met with a woman and she said she has a house here and that\u2019s when me and my son moved in here. \u201cMy son started to get children and he asked me if his children\u2019s mother could move in and I said yes,\u201d Smith recalled. According to the woman, from that day, her life took a turn for the worse. She said she endured years of abuse at the hands of her son\u2019s wife and his three children. \u201cThey took a bucket and hit me in my head and burst it. The neighbours have to give me food.\u201d The woman said that her daughter-in-law held her by her feet and dragged her down the stairs. \u201cThey don\u2019t know what is grandmother. They curse and beat me. They put me out of my own house and I have a son but he does nothing. \u201cI want to leave, I can\u2019t take it anymore. My own son has his mother sleeping next to a dog and in the rain although she has a house.\u201d Yesterday, when Kaieteur News visited Smith, she was seen sitting on a bench in front of her house with her clothes stuffed in two bags.
