RIP DA’MARION JOHNSON (October 8, 2016 – April 26, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Wednesday at 2:19 p.m.

A volvulus is when a loop of intestine twists around itself and the mesentery that supports it, resulting in a bowel obstruction.

Situs inversus is a congenital condition in which the major visceral organs are reversed or mirrored from their normal positions. The normal arrangement of internal organs is known as situs solitus.
