Ryman Ali Little

Ryman Ali Little was born on April 24th, 2013. Parents, Brandy & Jeremy Little, were preparing to leave the hospital and take Ryman home on April 26th but Ryman’s nurse had been concerned about her not being as alert and not wanting to eat. The NICU doctor at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee expected a metabolic disorder, so baby Ryman was transferred to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.

Ryman was diagnosed with a rare metabolic disorder called CPS-1 (a UREA Cycle disorder) and as a result of this problem Ryman would need a liver transplant. Due to the very little amount of protein that her liver could break down she continued to have high ammonia levels and remained under the care of the doctors and nurses at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital until she was transferred to Washington DC, Children’s National Medical Center on the 12th day of her life. Ryman was under the care of the genetics team at Children’s until she received a liver transplant on August 30, 2013 from her donor angel at Georgetown University Hospital. 

Five days after her first transplant it was discovered that her hepatic artery had clotted and had caused permanent damage to that liver.  She was placed back on the transplant list and received her second liver transplant from another donor angel on September 18, 2013.

Six months post her second liver transplant she is home in Nashville and is doing great!
