My nurse just came in to give me my next dose of pain meds...45 minutes late.
The pain had already taken hold and when she came in I had my head buried under the sheets crying.
She apologized profusely for being late and explained she was wrapped up with something else.
She gave me the meds in my IV and asked if there was anything else she could get me.
Through my tears, all I could say was, "I want my mom."
