still safe!

hey again! it's marika
still out of the ICU (going for a record here)
i want to thank ronnie and brig for the hats. i got out of the shower and there was a package on my bed, which was amazing. i love packages. and mail. thanks guys! i wore the coke hat around the hospital today.
three procedures tomorrow: heart sonogram, spinal tap and a bone marrow biopsy, so they won't let me eat or drink from midnight until after the last procedure, which starts at 1pm tomorrow. not looking forward to that.
they scheduled my discharge for wednseday, so hopefully i'll be home for graduation!!

I'm so glad you will be able to walk and enjoy graduation.

Keep up the good work, Marika.

I also started a blog. It's more of a satirical type of blog, but check it out if you have the chance. haha

Hi there graduate!
After the prom experience you had, I hope you get that it's really irrelevant whether you made it to the actual graduation.
You have passed so many amazing miles stones.
May the celebration begin where ever you are!
We are all there applauding your magnificence and your triumphs.
