Karen called this morning. Chris didn’t get out of recovery until about 11 pm last night. Chris is really groggy this morning, although he did tell the nurses he wanted to get up and walk, and they obliged. Chris can’t talk much right now because his throat is really sore from having a breathing tube in it for so long. Chris’s family and Karen will be there throughout the day, but Karen said that Chris really needs his rest today, so she’s asking that people try to refrain from visiting and calling today. Chris’s pain is at about a 5 (on a scale of 1 to 10), and that’s with a lot of pain meds. Karen will try to update the blog later today to let everyone know how Chris is doing.
