I know the title of this post doesn't sound like I want to change my life and get off drugs. But I've been on morphine for more than a year and it's going to take a long time for me to get off the stuff.
At any rate, my morphine prescription expired Saturday and the nursing staff lagged in talking to the doctor about getting a refill. They gave me the runaround for two days.
At first they said they were going to fax something to Dr. Ho, the doctor in charge if The patients here at the San Francisco Nursing Center. Then they said they were waiting for the pharmacy to deliver the meds. Finally, after a lot of questions, they told me that the doctor wants to see me before he refills the prescription.
