   Watney wakes up to the high oxygen alarm outside. He pulls the antenna out of his hip and seals it with a patch kit. He returns to the HAB where he sutures his wound. Watney awakes to an oxygen warning and walks into the HAB where he removes the antenna piece. He digs around in his abdomen then staples the wound shut.
