Chemo side effects

I have a coworker who had a complete hysterectomy after being diagnosed with uterine cancer. I don't remember the grade, but it hadn't spread much. The surgeon felt he got it all but to be safe he recommended chemo and radiation. She just finished her 3rd round of chemo last week and is now in the hospital ICU on a ventilator and unresponsive. Her fever went up to 106! They're doing tests and trying to do a spinal tap. We are all very concerned that she might not make it How long can a person be on a ventilator before permanent damage is done? The nurse said she isn't making any effort to breathe on her own and has an erratic heart rate. Please send some prayers her way. Thank you
