Storyline

A doctor has been working to perfect a heart/lung machine, and plans to use it on his seriously ill wife as soon as he believes the time is right. But her condition is rapidly deteriorating, and she needs surgery now and can't wait for him to perfect his machine. He also believes he's the only one who can use it on her, though Kildare has studied it under him and Gillespie prefers that Kildare be the one to use it during the operation. Written by rbecker28
