Kalamazoo, Michigan (Woodtv.com) – At age 68, Dora Coburn wasn’t expected to stay much longer at Tendercare of Westwood nursing home in Kalamazoo Township – maybe two more weeks – because her rehab was going so well. A hospital had sent her there for rehabilitation. She had lots of medical issues, including heart problems and chronic kidney disease. The hospital also sent along a list of her allergies – bananas, codeine, iodine and penicillin. Bananas topped the list.
