    :( That's really awful news - I wonder what illness could be sudden enough for Mao to learn about it just now and serious enough for her to withdraw and leave for Japan immediately. :( I hope her mum feels better soon. My prayers and best wishes go to the entire family.

    Lots of illnesses appear suddenly. Perhaps most commonly heart attack & stroke. I wish the best outcome possible for Mao's mom

    I'll miss her in the GPF, but this is of course far more important.

    That's terrible. ((((Mao and her family))))

    There's no chance Adelina could make it in time, but aren't Mirai and Ashley in Los Angeles? They could be in Canada by 9p tonight.
