Arielle emphasized again that Harvey’s heart was failing. Harrison fell out with her, casting a ferocious look at her.
“What did you say?”
He raised his walking stick and was about to swing it toward Arielle.
Arielle stood still, without any trace of fear.
Meanwhile, Carter and Jared panicked as they immediately stood between Harrison and Arielle.
In the end, Jared was the one who got beaten by the stick.
Despite the pain, he still grabbed Harrison’s hand and pleaded, “Grandpa, please stop. She’s Arielle!”
“I don’t care who she is. I’ll kill anyone who dares to curse my grandson!”
Carter also helped to ease the situation. “Old Mr. J*****r, Arielle is good in medical. Please let her finish. I believe there’s something more she wants to say.”
Upon saying that, Carter turned to Arielle. “Right?”
If not, it would the end for Harvey’s life.
“Yes.” Arielle nodded slightly, and Carter’s eyes lit up with anticipation.
So, there’s still hope for him! Thank God!
Harrison questioned Arielle coldly, “What else do you want to say?”
Arielle started to explain. “His heart has been damaged terribly, so it will take time to recover. Thus, we’ll have to install a robotic pacemaker before his heart loses its function completely. And after his heart resumes to function normally, we can take off the robotic pacemaker.”
Harrison was stunned momentarily upon hearing that. “Do you mean the robotic pacemaker that Sann Group is selling?”
Arielle nodded firmly. Yes, that’s my masterpiece in Sann Group.
With that, Harrison furrowed his brows slightly. “I’ve seen the information about it. But I remember it is used for hearts with diseases. Could it be used to replace a heart’s function?”
Arielle shook her head slightly and then nodded again. “Initially, it couldn’t. But I’ve asked Vinson to modify it according to my instruction. It should be done at any minute now. That’s why I have to begin the open-chest surgery now. As soon as the robotic pacemaker is completed, I’ll install it into him right away.”
“A-Are you sure you can do it?” Harrison stared at Arielle skeptically.
She seems younger than the lead surgeon.
Arielle nodded. “I’ll do my best.”
Right then, Carter also nodded fervently. “Old Mr. J*****r, you can count on her. She’s the best doctor I’ve ever seen.”
Upon hearing that, only then did Harrison heave a sigh of relief.
But still, he let out a warning. “If you fail the surgery, I’ll kill you!”
That was indeed his catch-phrase which Queenie also got intimidated before.
Queenie’s heart skipped a beat as she heard him say it again.
She would not dare to conduct the surgery if she were Arielle.
And what modification is she talking about? I’ve never heard the robotic pacemaker can be used to replace a real heart. It’s merely a supporting aid. If she fails, Old Mr. J*****r would never let her off. Fine. Maybe I should let her bear the responsibility since she volunteers for it. It won’t be my fault if anything happens.
With that in mind, Queenie walked over to Harrison. “Old Mr. J*****r, I’m confident in this surgery too. But since Ms. Moore’s skills are better than mine, I’ll let her conduct it.”
