few hours until a doctor came in.”

Are you the folks from Hamer?” the doc asked. We nodded. “The patient is awake and asking for you. Before you go in, he may be a little out of it. When he recovered from anesthesia, he kept demanding a lawyer.” “The doctor seemed to suggest he was more worried about a lawyer suing him than Tex’s recovery. We followed him into the intensive care room where Tex looked near death, but when he saw us, he seemed to improve a bit.”

I need a lawyer,” He wheezed.
