You've probably played the game Operation with your friends and family, but when
someone you care about is getting a real operation,
it can be scary. An operation is also called surgery, and it's when doctors fix something
inside the body to make the person feel better. The doctor may take out a burst appendix,
close up a hole in the heart, or even put in a new kidney! The good part about surgery
is that it usually means the person is on the road to feeling better.
