Hi I've read some of your work and I must say that you're a very talented writer. It would mean a lot to me if you read my stories

Lots of telling in this story, but precise sounds exciting.
[The surgery went well and Daniel was moved into recovery while Davy went to intensive care to be monitored closely. Jackie was finally allowed to see Daniel as he woke. She sat down on the chair by his bed and just waited.]
The only words I can visualize in the opening first paragraph is chair and bed. You really have to get into the POV of your protagonist. Rewrite this in the eyes of your protagonist, instead of this omniscient paragraph.
["I hate going to the North," she complained. "It's so expensive and the Yanks act like a bunch of uneducated morons."

Hope these small comments help your writing.
