... does that make "9" what it feels like to be hit by a Buick?
Today was day one of the pump trial. At 6pm last night, I cut BR's Fentanyl dosage by 2/3rds and stopped all breakthrough pain meds. By the time he was on the doctor's table at 2pm today, he had been at a solid "9" on the pain scale for several hours.
And he's still at a "9".
I'm praying that today was placebo day.
He'll be back on the table for day two of the trial tomorrow. It's really hard to watch him suffer like this.
