Dispatch 4/17/2002: 

After being stranded at base camp for few days to get rid of a bad spell of Khumbu cough, on April 19th still very tired, Martine took advantage to follow Apa Sherpa and Tashi Tenzing going to Camp 1. From there and then Martine made it solo to Camp 2 where she stayed for the night. She had a miserable sleep due to high altitude. Her plan was to make an attempt the next day April 20th, to reach Camp 3. Short of news to this moment, it is unknown if she made it. Weather was splendid, she has a sunburned face and promised to use her computer to send pics if she finds it repaired and functioning at Base Camp.
