Week 4 - Saturday

Doctors treating Marika have learned that her seizures were a result of some recent cerebral strokes. Her doctors have ruled out the possibility that her cancer had spread from the bloodstream, so that is good news. They found blood clotting in her pancreas and kidney which is causing her severe pain. She is still sedated to help her cope with these conditions. Her medical team and family is watching over her in intensive care.

It goes without saying: Keep the positive coming, keep the love coming, keep the faith. ~Janet

Dear Marika,
I am following your progress everyday. Lots of ups and downs! Let this be a minor detour. Let that medication start doing its thing! Let your body begin to fight back! Let that pain begin to subside! I am praying for you.
Love, Marjorie

We're rooting for you from here in Boston! Go Red Sox, Celtics, and the real champion, Marika!

We still remember how you sang for us at your mother's place and we hope to have a repeat performance when you're fully recovered.
