U3A Writing: Transplant

There's a shock in store for the lady who was the first brain transplant patient, as Graeme Lindridge's tale reveals.

Slowly her vision cleared. She was in the recovery room and realised the operation had been a success.

"Here am I, Mary Brown, the world's first brain transplant patient, and I feel good."

It had been a long wait but worth it. The ugly body she had been born with had been cast aside like a second-hand dress.

"We want no secondary complications," Dr Abbott had assured her. "Your brain will only be transplanted into a perfect donor body."

Dr Abbott arrived and she expressed her heartfelt gratitude and admiration.

Nonchalantly, he replied, "All in the day's work, Mr Brown."
