A grateful heart

Khanda’s surgery was moved from this morning until hopefully tomorrow. Khanda is not drinking much milk, and getting it mainly through the NG tube. Still, she enjoyed the time lying in the arms of her adoring grandma. Khanda’s grandma told me that she loves her room in the hos-pital, she loves all the nurses and doctors who are wonderful to take care of Khanda. She was full of compliments for the cleanliness of the hospital, and it is a real pleasure to sit in the company of a lady with such a grateful heart.

She told me that before she came, she had been very worried about coming away from Kurdistan to a foreign land, but now she is so happy that she has come here, and does not feel alone or afraid. Her care is just towards Khanda, and she is hopeful that the surgery will go ahead tomorrow.
