Francesca at home in her Colorado wildlife garden

From My Heart
The thought of under going heart surgery has been daunting but Dr. Hon Lee has been a reassuring calm. Our expectations are set for minimally invasive port access Barlow Bileaflet Mitral Valve REPAIR on Nov 8th.  Colorado Kaiser and I have not always seen eye to eye but, California Kaiser Dr. Lee and I do.  We felt a connection right away, he through my art and I through his genuine tranquil candor. Please pray for both of us… for gifted hands to work art on my heart! See you on the other side.

Baci (kisses), Francesca
