The heart function – according to a four-year-old.

Small talk, when putting big brother to bed last night:

– I think it’s a bit scary that they are going to operate on Abbe tomorrow, said mum to big brother. – I also think it’s scary. I don’t want them to operate on me, said big brother.. – But there’s no need, your heart is fine. Abbe’s is not. – Yes, said big brother, now there’s just one man pumping in there. But later, there’ll be two men pumping their socks off.

Amazing what children understand, isn’t it.
