When a cleric rolls a failure on his lay on hands check, does he immediately get to retry healing the same wound? Or does the cleric need to wait to try and heal another wound? Can't seem to find this in the book.

You can try to heal the same wound as many times as you like, but each failed roll increases your Disapproval Range.

Which is what makes "let me just try that again" a risky choice. As that range goes up, the chance of Disapproval increases -- it can even increase into the range of successful rolls, making them failures.

Remember also, the higher the failed roll, the more dice you roll to determine Disapproval. Which means that if your roll of 12 fails, you are rolling 12d4. Things can get hairy.
