Overview: Miracles Happen ... Sometimes

The book 'Miracles Happen ... Sometimes' as the name suggests, is about the innate power of belief and faith. The power of positivity, the power of a never say die attitude, the incessant nature of a person to know that he/she will be alright no matter what comes forth. This book is about getting up after life punches you down. It revolves around the protagonist Pam and the travesties she goes through health wise.

The book tells people about anorexia and bulimia. Never heard of them have you? They are more common than they appear. They are a couple of eating disorders which can have nasty repercussions over time. It is most commonly found in teenagers and young adults. It can happen to any and everybody, if precautions aren't executed properly.

Pam on the other hand suffered from a vascular disease, which ultimately led to feet amputation. Not only that, some of her finger tips, the thumb, and a part of her right hand underwent amputation as well. She could only breathe with a mere 35% efficiency due to the dire effects on the lungs. Apart from this, she had to undergo dialysis three times every week on account of a kidney failure. She would slip into a coma periodically, almost near a fatal end.

Will she ever recover? Can she get back to her normal state? Will she return home?

     Sometimes... 17 December, 2013 On
    Cliff Koch has written Miracles happen… sometimes in order to fulfill his late wife Pam’s wish that the story be told of her battle with adult respiratory distress syndrome, pancreatitis, and other grave medical conditions caused by her eating disorder. Through first-person summary from Koch’s perspective combined with a section told in Pam’s voice, the book details the numerous illnesses caused by her eating disorder, which started in the early 1980’s.

    The bulk of the book details the time period from the fall of 2002 through 2005, when her acute pancreatitis spiraled into adult respiratory distress syndrome, peripheral vascular disease, kidney failure and bilateral pneumothoraces (the collapse of both lungs).

    This is not a study of Pam’s character and life. Instead, it is a review of hospital visits, including Orange Hills rehabilitation facility and Lakeview Medical Center. Pam’s parents, Doris and Lucien, as well as her sister Eileen recur throughout Koch’s descriptions of late-night emergency room visits and heated arguments with hospital staff.

    Miracles happen… sometimes is focused on the medical procedures that Pam undergoes — such as a bilateral amputation of her feet — and the miscommunication between Cliff and various medical and billing staff. Koch says of applying for Social Services, “…it would have been easier to apply for a job at the C.I.A.” The transitions between each exhausting and harrowing emergency room visit are repetitive and distract from the account, as do the numerous verb tense and conjugation errors.

    Miracles happen is interesting if for no other reason than it's a first-person account of the day-to-day life of care taking the seriously ill. Those in the medical professions would benefit from reading this to deepen their understanding of the stressful day-to-day life of caretakers. It isn’t likely to appeal to a general reading audience, however, due to the fact that the experiences Koch recounts are not contextualized into a discernible narrative shaped by reflection or personal growth.
