MINNEAPOLIS, MN [MW Communications] - On Wednesday Nov. 4, Resa Ellison, choir director at St. Mary's Orthodox Cathedral in Minneapolis, sang at Vespers but was beginning to feel sick. The next day she went to the doctor and was diagnosed with probable H1N1.  He sent her home to rest. On Friday she felt pretty good but by Saturday she was running a fever and on Sunday Nov 8 she was admitted to Unity Hospital with H1N1 and pneumonia. On Monday Nov 9 as her breathing became difficult, the decision was made to move her to the ICU. Her condition continued to worsen and by Tuesday evening, in Acute Respiratory Distress, she had to be sedated and put on a ventilator to breath for her. She has now been in ICU over a month. Please read her journal here for more info.

The Cathedral office has set up a fund to support Resa with some of the
extraordinary costs associated with her illness.
