Francesca at home in her Colorado wildlife garden

and a new life lease...
The staff of Summit Alta
Bates Hospital 3N are the most encouraging and remarkable
group of International people! After this physically
traumatic event I was nurtured back to recovery by this
amazing team of health care providers. My sisters Gwen and
Marie where by my side assisting me as I struggled through
the first 5 horrid days of recovery. Slowly since discharge,
I feel better day by day. Cognitive skills lost over 5 years
ago when the valve regurgitation became severe have been
regained at an amazing pace with visual colors and light
almost being too bright!
all your love sent,

Successful Mitral Valve REPAIR!
had a bad hair day? First day POST OP was everything it looks
like… pure hell that continued though the first week. Dr. Lee
and Francesca spent a moment wishing fellow dual valve
replacement Peruvian patient Rossana good health on her
discharge day. Day ten Francesca presented her life sized heart
art greeting card to the staff and said final good byes to 3N
chief night nurse Paula. Dr. Lee and his staff come with my
highest recommendation for this challenging new minimally
invasive open heart repair.
Collector flashback… Enzo and Rian Montelbano
Piazza San Marco
café owners proudly display Francesca’s wild art. Enzo and his
lovely wife Rian provided Francesca and Antonia’s 2005 anchor
for their 2 month rendezvous in Florence. Italian ices, smiles
and a toast of champagne reunited all this summer of 2006. Any
wonder why Francesca loves ITALIA!
Francesca’s Heart Art Fundraiser
ART ON THE TERRACE fundraiser was well
attended by new and existing collectors. A warm burning fire pit
created a colorful back drop for entertaining and a great photo
opt for Francesca’s newest collectors. Close to 65% of
Francesca’s heart surgery expenses were raised through this one
day event! Thanks you all of you for supporting her event.
