|he got shot in the heart. the only way to insure his life is to have a heart transplant, only the body rejects the heart|
All a Lie Pt.2 the transplant. "How long", Cedars mother asked the doctor. "On a guess, he will be dead-one mabey two days after he wakes, and that will be around a few hours", Dr. Liner told his mother. "Oh, God no, isn't there anything you can do", she pleaded. "Not unless someone dies in the next few hours with-what blood type is he again". "A/B positive". "Wow, that is really rare. I will guess that only three more people in the town would fit that. I am sorry, oh, I forgot, how has he been doing with James' death", James was Cedar's father, he got caught in a drive by seven months ago. "Just stoped cryin'". Okay, when Cedar was shot it pearced one of the chambers of the heart, normaly they could patch it up and send him on his way, but it tore it to peices. Now the heart is overworking itself to exaustion, and will give out soon. Oh, I almost forgot, sorry, Dr. Liner and Cedar's Mom were very good friends. So that is how they know eachother Ash (Cedar's mom) went to the police station after her visit with Dr. Liner and got a little radio that had police frequency, that way she could hear if anyone died. They also promised that they would check if any of them had A/B positive. "Thanks so much". She said as she left. Two hours later Ash sat by the radio and her son listening very close to the sound of his breathing and the radio-when it happened. His teacher was being checked for blood when, it was A/B positive! "Okay we are on a time frame here, we have a hour or so to get a team together that knows how to do a heart transplant, NOW!". Okay, how many steps to the other side of the waiting room, Ash said as the surgry was being done, 55, wow that was more than I expected, this place is so tiny. Everything was going good, not too much blood was lost, even the heart fit accordingly, but there was one true problem, the body rejected the heart. "There is no way someone will die in less than 30 minutes", Dr. Liner said almost ready to wash up, only minutes waiting. "I've got it, that other kid Cooper, we could use his heart, even though that is a B positive, we could drain the blood of him now and replace it with Cooper's blood and heart and we will have him back", a surgan said. "Okay but there is one problem with your theroy", Dr, Liner told him rather blankly. "What?" "Phisics, he could suffer loads of brain damage". "It is a risk we will have to take". So, it was settled, but they had close to no time, not to mention that no one had ever tried such a stupid trick. But no other choice was avalible other than to watch him die slowly. Okay, I will be honest, I am only 11, and know nothing of surgry and that, so i will skip the details okay? Well, they drained him and replaced the blood and the heart, first all you could hear is beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, but then very, VARY, faintly a beepbeep, beepbeep, and it got stronger and stronger, one of the most crazy surgerys was compleat, the whole team got noble peace prizes. They told Cedar what all had happened when he woke up but one question remained: how much brain damage, only around 10%. but that 10% would change his life. "Who's heart is in me now?" "Um, Swettie, Coop's", Cedar almost threw up, his own friend inside of him, very frightning thought. Something was diffrent inside of him. SOMTHING.... Tweet
