    Re: touch and go

    "Touch and go" means that the result was precarious or uncertain until the very end.

    "He was in the hospital with pneumonia, and it was touch and go until the antibiotics finally started taking effect."

    "Three of the plane's four engines had failed, and it was touch and go until we finally landed safely."
