Torg passed out after being reunited with his crew.

QongDaqDaq ghaHtaH. = QongDaq is a noun, so QongDaqDaq is IN that noun. "He
is in a bed."
'oy'taH chorDaj 'ej pujtaH ghaH, 'ach 'arghHa'bejpu' ghu'. = "His belly
continues to hurt and he is weak, but the situation has definitely changed
for the better."
loj baS jej. = "The sharp metal is all gone."

"maQ, vemlI' SIDwI'," jatlh jul. = "maQ, my patient is waking up," says Sun.
"qaSpu' nuq?" jatlh torgh. "What has happened?" says Torg.

jatlh, "jIHvaD 'Iw lunob'a' chaH?" = He says "THEY gave me blood?"
lujpu' torgh. = "Torg has failed."
qatlh lujwI'vaD 'Iw nob tlhIngan SuvwI'? = "Why does a Klingon warrior give
blood to a loser?"

"Everyone was willing to give it to you, but only they had your blood type."
I like that jul answers his question with her part in what has happened
since he passed out, because that's presumably the part Torg didn't know
about. She doesn't realize that there's another chunk of information missing
for Torg. And that she calls the boss before doing anything else as he wakes
up. I like this part. I'm allowed to like my own story, right?
