The Heart of St. Francis | E2

Dr. Richard Shlofmitz leaves the restaurant and rushes back to the hospital to attend to a patient suffering cardiac arrest. At the hospital, he receives the unsettling news that his mother-in-law passed out at the restaurant shortly after he left.  We meet Alicia, a 37-year-old heart patient. Fifteen years earlier, the staff at St. Francis saved Alicia’s life after a serious car accident caused life-threatening damage to her heart. Today, doctors are implanting a device to measure the pressures inside her heart. On the way to her procedure, she is recognized by Anna McNamara, one of the original nurses to care for Alicia after her accident. Anna admits to getting chills at seeing Alicia again after all these years. Edmond’s wife, Mary, shares the difficulties of watching her husband go through his illness and admits that the experience is harder than living through her own cancer diagnosis years earlier.
