I was so self conscious on this page, BSing my medical talk.

Initially I was going to have the dialogue be fuzzy and indistinct, like Hilda on page 67, but that was supposed to represent Hilda being HoH, and Karen is not

At least not permanently I just realized the explosion might have damaged her hearing temporarily so I could have probably BSed the medical dialogue oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

image description/ transcript:

Karen is sitting on her hospital bed, with the door slightly open to the hall. In the hallway, a doctor is speaking.

DR: Let me take a look at those results. Torn tibial collateral ligament? Ruptured meniscus? We'll see what we can do with therapy and surgery. I'm more concerned about the potential brain injury. With what happened to the other one - All right, I'll speak with her.

The doctor, a white man in his 50s or 60s with grey hair and a receding hairline, walks in. Karen looks up at him blankly.

DR: Listen, soldier -- You're going to stay here for a while. We've done some tests and --

KAREN (annoyed): And I'll be fine.

DR: We need to talk about what happened. You have a traumatic brain injury from the explosion that rendered you unconscious. Your knee was also injured. I was speaking with my colleague about how to heal you so that you are capable of contributing ot our society again.

KAREN: I can contribute! I'm a soldier!

KAREN: I can still walk! I can still talk! Give me a gun and I'll show you I can still shoot!

The doctor pulls at his lapel nervously.

DR: Security?
