eyes. ''No...I'm not. Call base. Ask the medical team to meet us on the lip. I'm
losing blood fast....'' And she looked down to realize that it had been pooling
below her feet on the deck without her even realizing it. Her heart was pounding
in her chest like an overstressed freight train. Her voice sounded weak to her
ears, not filled with her usual strong confidence. Was she going to die? No! She
