I went into the hospital as a return visit after going home from phemonia and it was on a Friday I left to go home still wasn't feeling good enough to go home. But medical insurances such as medicare they tell me give them a hard time so even if I feel sick still they send me home and send nurses to my home for extended help. Friday night I started vomiting basically at both ends. Non stop could not keep any of my meds down not even water. So my doctors office told me to go back they said my intestines were swallon up! They admitted me!! I have COPD and other respratory problems heart disease had my aorta valve replaced and may need another one replaced.. They gave me ttl of morphine in under 6 hours in my IV.. While in my room they gave me morphine and xanax together at the same time. With my respratory and heart problems it could of killed me! Its common medical knowledge that you mix the 2 together it can cause respratory failure, coma and death! Hello what nurse in their right mind does that? Now since I have been home my heart has been skipping beats, my legs, arms and body has been weaker then ever. My breathering is more constricted.. My thinking pattern is off
