Response 3: Just in time

Scalpel please Paul, this was it my time to shine. My hands were very steady considering, and I felt very positive about this one.
“Woahh Carl that was close” “please Paul give me some space, I need to get this heart out without touching any of the nerves and you’re not helping!”
I’d only ever done this once before successfully, every other time I’d been beaten by the clock, I could hear the seconds ticking away each one getting louder, my hands were getting really sweaty now and I could feel the scalpel and tweezers slipping through my fingers, I looked up at Paul and his face said it all, I was going to lose this one.
No, I refuse to be beaten; I took a deep breath, reached in and pulled out the heart without lighting the patient’s nose up red.
Yes I’m the champion of operation! Great game!
