With supplies running low, Private Eugene Ellis and I entered the loading dock in hopes of procuring additional rations. We were caught off guard when a group of roughly half a dozen Stage 2s attacked us.
We neutralised the threat but not before Ellis was bitten.
After a long heated debate - where Private Ellis tried taking his own life - I incapacitated him. I then took it upon myself to break protocol. I isolated the infection with a tourniquet. I gathered and cleaned a surgical saw from the abandoned triage. I injected Private Ellis with morphine before amputating his arm several inches above the bite.
I'm confident that once the private regains consciousness he'll be clear of the Cordyceps Infection.
