Just wrote a detailed account of what happened but ran out of space. Bottom line is I know I used pain medication way more than necessary and would have been better off with a sleep aid. First morning after morphine pump, I could not focus and last night before being released, just about passed out in hallway. Have tried to address my sleep problems but guess they didn't seem important as opposed to the stricture. One thing at a time I guess.
