I asked a patient when he came in today, “How are you today?” just as I would every day. Most days I would get positive stories, but nothing about him personally. Today was different though, he replied, “I made it through the night last night with no pain! On a typical night, I cannot get any sleep without taking morphine because the pain was so bad before.” We don’t normally discuss his pain but today was different, so this was very heartwarming for me. I am so excited to see him continue with less and less pain, without drugs.
