Time for a specialist?

Please don't read this if you get a bit queasy.

Joan is suffering badly with diarrhoea and vomiting. The fluid she is getting can barely keep up with the losses. She is on a strict no food diet and cannot take even water by mouth because it causes her to immediately vomit. To top all that, she has a urinary tract infection and the doctor in her ward feels that she also has a stomach infection, but they cannot get solid samples for analysis.

I have brought home her underwear and clothes and washed and dried them to take back today. Serious treatment must be determined today as she is getting extremely weak and the current treatment is not working.

I have cancelled an appointment she had for today and will do the same for a couple more she has tomorrow. She is not in any condition to be discharged from hospital.
