An Educated Guess

Really that is what it comes down to.  After years of training and experience, doctors just do their best.  I remember one day during rounds asking a doctor point blank, “So you are just guessing at this point?”  His answer, “But it’s an educated guess.”  :)

The doctor has reduced Bella’s intake and increased her lasix.  She is still vomiting.  We are hoping to see cardiology this month, but they have to work us in, so we’ll see with the holidays.   Her Primary doesn’t think it’s cardiac, “unless it’s cardiomyopathy” (cringe).  Pulmonology and cardiology think it’s cardiac.  So we’ll go see the cardiologist and see what’s going on.

Ugh, I hate educated guesses. Is it just the vomiting, or other things too? It doesn't seem like vomiting would be cardiac. Does she eat through a g-tube or gj-tube?
