Marysol Patton

Marysol opens up about what happened to her mother.

on Aug 12, 20130

The doctors informed me that they needed to operate on my mother’s brain immediately to relieve the pressure of blood that was accumulated and causing swelling. The doctors suspected that this occurred from the impact of hitting the floor when she fell. I had to think fast, but cautiously, so I called Alexia, whose own son Frankie suffered brain damage after a severe car accident. I knew Alexia’s brother-in-law was a well-known doctor at the hospital where my mother was admitted, so I asked her to find out if the surgeon who was assigned to my mother’s case was the best option. We did not have time to lose, so Alexia made the call and quickly got back to me giving me the go ahead to let the doctor operate. After the surgery, we were informed by doctors that mom had a long road to recovery ahead of her and would remain in the hospital for months. 

As you can imagine, this has been the most painful crisis I have had to live through in my life. I have always been extremely close to my mother and not being able to talk to her was agonizing. It is difficult to describe the hurt and fear that I felt, and how it kept me up many nights crying. I have tried to stay positive, always sending mom light and visualizing her healthy and strong, for now that is the only thing that keeps me going.

I do hope Elsa is doing well. Lea and Elsa seems to be the only two with sense on the show.

Wishing a speedy recovery for your mother. Ok, Adrianna did not feel married but had a legal marriage ceremony. So I guess it is ok in the Latin culture to live in sin with a man when you are not married? Bring a child into the situation? Oh, please! That is not what concerned Adrianna. She just wanted to lie and create drama. I respect Lea on how she handled that insane woman. Lea is a class act.

...As part of the "click" I can see why you have to stand up for Angriana.  But please don't insult us with a "culture/ church" excuse.  She is Brazilian not Cuban!  And as if she really goes to church!  Her whole M.O. during these past 2 seasons has been...Poor me, a struggling single mother...not sure if I could ever get married and trust again...

I hope Mama Elsa Is doing well... I was devastated when I heard the news!! I love love love her!! She is a very wise woman!! I hope you speak up more this season!! I think your a little too passive!! And everyone knows in order to remain relevant you have to speak up!! Adriana flat out lied to everyone!! I hope you call her out on the bs!!! It wouldn't be such a big deal if she hadn't played up the whole I'm a single mom routine!!

Marysol! I sure hope your mom I doing better! I'll be honest with you, the two of you and Lisa are the only ones I even like at all on this show! I don't like Lea OR your friends! Trust me, those girls will turn on you in heartbeat! Watch your back! You heard your mom on that phone call on that trip last season!

Best wishes to your mother for a speedy and full recovery.

 

You need to lay off Lea Black.  Very unprofessional for a PR firm to call their clients or former clients a liar.  Maybe you would feel better about yourself if you accepted responsibility for your actions and inactions.  You did not decline an invitation to work The Gala you were not asked back.  Maybe you should listen to your mother on occasion.

First and foremost, I was saddened by the news of momma Elsa! I love her and hope she recovers fully.

 

On another note, Adriana was married and she denied being married. Her story-line was a full-blown lie. For you to say that about the Latin culture is incorrect. Marriage begins when you are certified by the courts, that makes it legal. Meaning: she is covered financially. Gays have been fighting for that right for years and for you to say it's not official is wrong.

Stop making excuses for Adriana's deception.  You know that a ceremony does NOT make a marriage.  If it was Lisa or any other castmate you don't like, you would have been condemning their lies.

I was so sorry to hear about Elsa! I will keep her in my prayers. She's a tough chick. I feel positive that she will pull through this.

"In the Latin culture (how I was raised), we are taught that until you have a religious ceremony, you are not considered “truly” married." They may not be "truly" married in the eyes of the church, but they are still "legally" married in the eyes of the state! ;-) I pray your mom recovers from her brain injury. I know what you are going through. My father suffered a massive stroke and was unable to speak or move anything except to turn his head. He was paralyzed from the neck down. He lingered for 6 months before he passed away. Just remember to take care of yourself, too.

Love Marysol and Mama Elsa! I wish Mama Elsa a speedy recovery. They are both such an integral part of the show. Epic fail that they were downgraded to "friends status".

 @anni1 What haters?  Almost every single post is positive towards Marysol and her mama, and only two point out to Marysol that not "feeling" married doesn't mean you aren't married.
