We have this patient always for difficult extraction. The first time I extracted blood from her she was happy and informed me that my hands were light and she wishes that it was always me who did the job.
Tonight, I was informed there was another extraction at the wards. And as soon as I walked into the room, it was the same patient and she gave me this smile and an expression of happiness.
It felt so good, seeing a patient react to you in that manner. And I am so lucky to be doing what I love and only dreamt of when I was little.
It was an amazing feeling.
