Thanks for the interesting post, Japanice. I hope it's nothing more than Mao feeling a need to rest up a little.
A couple of years ago Johnny Weir tried to get out of attending the USFSA Champs Camp, in part because of a heavy appearance schedule. The U.S. Federation made him attend the camp anyway.
Oh, no, I hope Mao is all right! It would be devastating if she...well, best not to think about it.
