On October 23rd, Maribeth was admitted to the hospital for what she thought to be minor stomach issues. She was a patient at St. Elizabeth for about a month, where she fought off infections and found out she had cirrhosis of the liver, compromising her immune system. After contracting a bad case of pneumonia, Maribeth was urgently transferred to UC hospital where they cleared up the pneumonia and alerted her she was in dire need of a liver transplant to survive.

UC gave her 3-6 months to live, but she did not meet their criteria for transplant thus she could not be put on their list. They got her as healthy as possible and discharged her to Encompass Physical Rehabilitation Hospital on December 20th where she learned to walk again and built back up her strength. With the persistence of her family, they obtained an appointment with Johns Hopkins Transplant Team in Baltimore, Maryland where Maribeth along with family traveled immediately upon discharge from Encompass.
