Patty's still in a fair amount of pain, but it isn't nearly as intense or consistent as it was two hours ago. She falls asleep for a moment here and there, but has mostly been awake for a while and is being a reasonably cheerful--albeit uncomfortable and weary--patient. She's quite talkative for one with a sore throat and the rough equivalent of a stab wound in her side. If there's more to report, I'll let you know. If you don't hear anything for a while, presume that things are pretty much status quo.
