In 2010, I was sent home with an inhaler, and a diagnosis of an allergic reaction to pollen. I had a temperature of 101 degrees that day.
Chest x-rays were not taken or ordered. Four days later I was taken to the hospital via an ambulance delirious with pneumonia. Close to a
liter of infectious fluid was drawn from my right lung, and my left lung had collapsed. The hospital stay was almost two months while an
infection in my chest cavity defied antibiotics. I ended up having a thoracotomy, in which the
infection was cut out, because it would not go away.
