Why isn't Marika posting?
After posting on Day 6, Marika continued to have difficulty breathing. Later that day, her doctors transferred her to intensive care to be on the safe side, and put her on a ventilator, helping her to breathe with the assistance of an air tube. She was sedated, because it's really hard to stay quiet with a breathing tube going down your throat! She continues to receive chemotherapy and is improving continually. The doctors have lightened the sedation and are still watching her closely in the Intensive Care Unit. Please keep posting because her family is reading aloud to Marika, she will know that you wrote to her, and she will only get stronger and feel better knowing that you care so much. ~Janet
