Admitted for surgery tomorrow

Dina was admitted to Sheba hospital tonight for her surgery tomorrow. She and her mother are just one room over from two other Kurdish mothers, who said that all of the hospital is Kurdish now!

Dina’s mother always uses the word “masboot” which is an Arabic loan word in Kurdish meaning ‘correct.’ She’ll often say ‘Hamu masboot,’ when she is explaining that she has cleaned the kitchen or helped us put away all of the groceries. As Dina’s surgery is fast approaching, I was thinking of how I hope by this time tomorrow, I can say to her ‘Hamu masboot legel’ Dina, or all is correct (or good) with Dina, after her operation.

May it be so.
