The following quote is taken from Written In My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 117 "INTO THE BRIAR PATCH". Copyright (c) 2014by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.


   " The wine could wait, and any surgeon dances with death routinely. The
problem was that I'd forgotten the steps and was flirting with panic.
   I bent to check Tench's heart rate and respiration. He was breathing shal-
lowly but fast. Lack of oxygen, severe blood loss . . . and I felt my own chest
tighten, heaving for air, and stood up, giddy, heart hammering.
   "Sassenach," I turned, hand on the bedpost, to see Jamie watching me,
eyebrows drawn together. "Are ye all right?"
   "Yes," I said, but my own voice sounded queer even to my own ears. I shook
my head hard, trying to clear it. Jamie came close to me and put his hand on
mine, where it rested on the bedpost. It was big and steady, and it helped.
   "Ye willna help him, lass, if ye faint in the midst of it," he said, low-voiced. "
