The Miracle of Marisol

March 19, 2001 Marisol Ramirez was born at Holy Cross Hospital and was immediately diagnosed with jejunal atresia. A condition where the small intestine is completely blocked. She was immediately rushed into surgery at the Children’s Hospital in D.C. Although the surgery fixed the blockage of the intestine, in turn it caused short gut syndrome. This syndrome kept her in the hospital until she was four months old. Even though she was treated for longer, the doctors could still not get her diet regulated. Once Marisol was sent home, she was only able to eat small portions. Her only other way of nutrition was through painful IV’s and TPN.

Back in Pittsburgh. Marisol had not been feeling well and her team ordered a chest xray. The xray confirmed she has pneumonia she also has an infection in her broviac (the line that she gets connected to with fluids nightly). The team wanted her in Pittsburgh ASAP and with a 5 hour drive we arrived to the hospital at 3 am. We are exhausted but thank God arrived safely. Please keep Marisol in your prayers. God bless #donatelife #miraclemarisol

Marisol has been doing great! She had an awsome weekend at Ocean City with her cousins.
Her kidneys have been acting up a little so her transplant team wanted her to be seen by their Nephrologist to see if they recommend anything. She will also be seen by her transplant team. Marisol’s appointment is at 8:00 on Thursday and with a 5 hour drive to Pittsburgh we came Wednesday afternoon. Thanks to a wonderful organization called AngelFlight and an awsome pilot @Anthony Loguidice we made it to Pittsburgh in under 2 hours.

Marisol and I went out to dinner and are now enjoying Paint Night at the Ronald McDonald house. God willing we will be heading home after clinic. Please keep her in your prayers and I will update tomorrow. God bless.
