Everyone eye-fucked us. There were Hells Angels coming and going all around. JJ, in an observational role, sat at the end of the bar and watched while fighting off offers for free drinks and motorcycle rides. The situation in the casino was palpably tense. The Angels knew the Mongols were around. They expected a fight, but they didn't know when or where it would start. The Angels had sent spies to the Mongols’ hotel and were convinced that the Mongols had returned the favor. No one seemed approachable, and I hadn't yet seen Smitty the main guy I wanted to meet.

A beep-beep went off, unlike the beep-beeps monitoring my heart and respiratory rates. A sound like a small servo followed. Not ten seconds later I was as high and happy as I could be. I passed back out. I woke up, I passed out, I woke up. Nurses changed my bedpan and sponged me down. I recovered some strength, I got up and walked around, dragging my setup—the IV, the morphine drip, the chest tube detached from its pump—around with me. After a few days I could walk up and down the hall once. After a week I could walk around the recovery unit.
