Hollis is waking up more, despite being heavily medicated with Morphine and sedatives. She's definitely feeling some discomfort, but is more annoyed by all the IV lines and drains in her. She was feeling a little nauseous and had some dry heaves, but they gave her some meds for that, and she settled back down. Surgery was very clean and looks good and is draining less and less fluid. A little fever overnight, but it was controlled with Tylenol. Overall, she is doing pretty well, and is resting pretty comfortably.
