Image of Bryan in a hospital bed banging on the nurse’s call button like a video game, while the TV is on (perhaps Weeds, or some other drug-based show).

Close up of my face looking distraught.
Meanwhile, the doctors discussed sending him to hospitals in LA, Arizona, or San Francisco to see if he could get on a transplant list, and supposedly to get a second opinion. Bryan informed us that apparently, hospitals in Nevada don’t do transplants, since malpractice settlements aren’t capped. So, I guess doing them is not a good GAMBLE.
