Sandra,
Forgive me for not calling. I am so worn out. I am losing my voice. I read your long wonderful FB post with the latest update. I am amazed how you got everyone's name from that night....
AND I was informed today that Canada will be sending me a bill, probably around $200K when all is said and done....WTF a bill is just a piece of paper....So I am fund raising as much as I can ... it will only cost me $8K a day on the ward, instead of the $14K per day it is costing now. ... This team of doctors here is very aggressive, they are ninjas ...
I am so very tired.

Last evening the breathing apparatus was removed! His son arrived from Denver and there is no doubt Alberto is very happy to see Gina and Alberto Jr, as well as Valorie!

Today Valorie advised Alberto is quite lucid, although he has no recollection of the events leading up to his being in the hospital. He is still under critical watch, but progress is being made, he is now down to 1 machine from the ~ 12 systems!

He has had a brain scan, and the angiogram was delayed until discussions with his NOLA doctor.

Thank you for continuing to send all your prayers, emails, texts, phone calls, warm wishes and support!

Here is an address for those wanting to send anything for Alberto and Valorie here:

Today was a very uplifting … Alberto's body temperature was successfully returned to normal and evidence that the sedation was slowly dissipating: Alberto began to show signs of his fighting spirit!

It must have been the wonderful Tango music Valorie played for him!

He opened his eyes, squeezed Valorie's hand, moved his legs, responded to directives, recognized voices and could nod/shake his head in response to questions! He remains with the breathing tube at least for another day, although he has indicated quite clearly, he is not happy about this uncomfortable contraption!

Friday he is scheduled for angioplasty and we will have even more info as to his status.

Thank you for all your prayers, emails, texts, phone calls, warm wishes and support!

Tuesday night at 9:30 pm we were excitedly awaiting the arrival of Alberto Paz and Valorie Hart to launch Epicurean Tango Society's – Argentine Tango Intensivo 10 Days of Total Tango Immersion beginning on Wednesday October 27th, 2010 … Planet Tango's first time in Calgary!
Since February 2010, Alberto and I developed a wonderful friendship, emailing and speaking weekly about Tango, culture, traditions, music, teaching, history, knowledge, experience, lexicon and the kind of Tango content that was enjoyable and educational to elevate fundamental Tango Technique Excellence. A teaser was sent on September 21st and this was publicized on Monday September 27th, 2010:

Argentine Tango 10 day Intensivo Mini Residency with Master Tango Instructors
Alberto Paz and Valorie Hart
2009 USA Salon Tango Champions
Best Selling Authors of "Gotta Tango" book & DVD
Bibliographers of Planet-Tango.com
October 27th to November 5th, 2010
From that date forward, regularly advertised and promoted on dozens of International, North American, Canadian, Regional and local Tango, entertainment, media and dance sites, plus thousands of people via my distribution and many others who kindly shared the Tango Magic Spirit, espoused by Planet Tango.
In front of the airport arrivals, there was a major commotion of multiple emergency response vehicles; we wouldn't understand the magnitude of this scene for another 40 minutes, as our life and priorities would dramatically change in the next 36 hours.


As we waited, I noticed a woman passing by held up by two Continental Agents, when I suddenly realized it was Valorie; I called to her – with a glazed and disoriented look – almost blind like, she turned around and the most chilling words tumbled out of her mouth, "Alberto collapsed, he had a heart attack at the Customs entrance …" the rest seemed to move in fast and slow motion at once, as I tried to process this shocking news and understand what was going on. The day before, Alberto received a clean bill of health from his Doctor.



I know God was and is, watching over him, as this didn't happen during the flight, upon descent, deplaning or even the very long lonely walk from the gate to Customs … a sign.


They came off the ramp to line up for Customs, when he advised Valorie he felt faint – she turned around only to see him collapse, yelling out "heart attack, call the Doctor immediately". From Airline Staff, Customs Agents and Airport Paramedics – their quick action of CPR, followed by multiple defibrillation most certainly saved his life, as he was revived 7 times before a stable pulse was found … a sign.


This is why I have come to adore and love Alberto – only he could make such a grand, first entrance into Calgary, Alberta Canada, in the MOST PUBLIC and POPULATED place anywhere for IMMEDIATE emergency attention … Airport Customs … a sign.


As we followed the ambulance to Peter Lougheed Hospital, I pulled out my phone to call our dear friends Akram and Jen to let them know what occurred. My phone showed 1:42 am … what?? Did we really spend almost 5 hours at the airport? This was bizarre … couldn't have … then I saw the number 7 which is a spiritual number … this message told me, either God called Alberto home, or it was to let me know all would be ok. Upon disconnecting the call my phone returned to regular time 10:23 pm, but never registered the call … a sign.



It is EXCEPTIONAL for Emergency staff to be "waiting " for your arrival – at two hospitals!! No one else was there and ALL the staff were completely focused on him … a sign.


At Peter Lougheed Hospital, they cooled and stabilized Alberto, then immediately transferred him to Foothills Hospital where they induced a coma for 24 hours to reduce his body temperature and protect his brain from possible neurological damage.  At 12:30 am today, they began the warming process which would take 6 to 9 hours or longer to prevent shock to his organs. He is stable and has the best care by top cardiologists. We are blessed to know 2 doctors – a fellow and resident who are close by … a sign.



Alberto's daughter arrived last evening from Huntington Beach, CA and his son is arriving tonight from Denver. As the news gets out, friends and students from around the world, called, texted, emailed with prayers and many generous offers … our dear friends and tango community have stepped up quickly offering unconditional support to us and accommodation to those who are wanting to travel to be here with Alberto and Valorie … we are truly blessed … a sign.



Since Friday, I have received an overwhelming number of calls and emails about the Argentine Tango Intensivo with Alberto and Valorie. With everything upside down, on Wednesday and no sleep, I went from call to messages waiting , nonstop all day, afternoon and evening, advising callers what happened and the postponement, while trying to create an action plan of to do with sensitivity, grace and consideration. I tried my best to manage this unwieldy mercurial load; please accept my apologies if I missed you , emailed you twice and bear with me, as I try to cover all bases under these circumstances.

Our deepest, appreciation and heartfelt thank you to Akram and Jennifer for your steadfast care, love, support, friendship and stepping in to set up an Epicurean Tango Open at Carpenter's Hall to welcome those arriving for the "Dance Tango Tonight Workshop #1". We offered a complimentary evening of Tango, tea, juice, cookies and videos of Alberto and Valorie dancing, as well as sale of "Gotta Tango" books and DVD, which will be autographed. A small offering in light of the disappointment and tragic news with hopeful wishes. I'm sorry I missed taking a photo of the beautiful set up to show what a wonderful ambience they created to welcome everyone.

We will host 2 events this weekend:

In the Year of the Tiger, great things are possible
A New Year … A New Idea … A New Club
Epicurean Tango

Although Calgary is a city of over one million people, the current tango community is quite small.

This club was created to offer an inviting and friendly milieu, within a welcoming, expansive community,
fueled with enthusiasm for Tango, a passion to learn, share, develop and surpass existing tango skills.

Epicurean Tango has attracted people who have never been exposed to Tango before, as well as,
Welcoming back those, who left and includes experienced Tangueros seeking a unique experience.

Tango in Calgary is in its early stages of a beautiful, blossoming garden with unlimited possibilities,
unrestricted colour, unconditional acceptance infused with a positive energy that fosters a productive and progressive life journey encompassed with joy and camaraderie. You're invited to share in this exciting experience.
The Argentine Tango Intensivo Mini Residency covers 10 days, so there is quite a bit of information inside!
A tremendous amount of planning and preparation went into this programme.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me for clarification. Whether you're new to Tango or have danced for years, we will guide you in a caring, learning environment.

Thank you for your support, bring your friends, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife!
We're committed to expanding the Tango Community and sharing the pleasure of dancing by embracing new people, celebrating the joys of friendship, our ethnicity, enjoying food and drink, sharing a passion for Tango, elevating our Tango Technique and benevolent support. Your feedback continues to improve our standard of excellence.

Welcome to a unique and authentic Argentine Tango Experience!

it took 7 defibrillations by Emergency Paramedics before sustaining his pulse

Days later Foothills Medical Staff revived Alberto again, after a 2nd heart attack
An angiogram revealed a 100% blocked artery
Only the day before, Alberto emailed his clean bill of health from his New Orleans' cardiologist
We discovered on a website, that Alberto was declined Travel insurance for his Canadian trip.

Sandra,
Forgive me for not calling. I am so worn out. I am losing my voice. I read your long wonderful FB post with the latest update. I am amazed how you got everyone's name from that night....
AND I was informed today that Canada will be sending me a bill, probably around $200K when all is said and done....WTF a bill is just a piece of paper....So I am fund raising as much as I can ... it will only cost me $8K a day on the ward, instead of the $14K per day it is costing now. ... This team of doctors here is very aggressive, they are ninjas ...
I am so very tired.

In the Year of the Tiger, great things are possible
A New Year … A New Idea … A New Club
Epicurean Tango

Although Calgary is a city of over one million people, the current tango community is quite small.

This club was created to offer an inviting and friendly milieu, within a welcoming community,
fueled with enthusiasm for Tango, a passion to learn, share, develop and surpass existing tango skills.
Epicurean Tango has attracted people who have never been exposed to Tango before, as well as,
Welcoming back those, who left and includes experienced Tangueros seeking a unique experience.

Tango in Calgary is in its early stages of a beautiful, blossoming garden with unlimited possibilities,
unrestricted colour, unconditional acceptance filled with an  energy that fosters a positive,
productive and progressive life journey. You're invited to share in this exciting experience.

  The Argentine Tango Intensivo Mini Residency covers 10 days, so there is quite a bit of information inside!
A tremendous amount of planning and preparation went into this programme. 
Whether you're new to Tango or have danced for years, 
we will guide you in a caring, learning environment.

  Thank you for your support, bring your friends, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife.
we're here and interested in your feedback, to continue to improve our standard of excellence.

Welcome to a unique and authentic Argentine Tango Experience!
Sandra Miller
Founder

Culture and philosophy is nothing without the people.
It is with great affection and appreciation we acknowledge these friends for their support, 
contributions and participation:

Anthony Ng, Guylene Sene, David Somerville, Nebal Nosshi, Nadia Khalil, Bruno Romero, Alberto Paz, Emad & Carol - Son of the Pharaoh,

Hi Sandra & Ralph;

Many thanks for sharing last evening & introducing me to dancing the Tango.

Considering all the hard work you put in to make these evenings successful Sandra.

May I suggest that you arrange to have someone else looking after kitchen duties so that you can be free to dance , mingle and have more fun.

I look forward to being with you both for Valentine's Milonga Feb. 13th.

Cheers!
Ron

Forwarded from Anthony ... So glad you enjoyed.....

Hi Anthony…It was a wonderful event. Thank you for your instruction.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the class.

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with Frank and Tess. They took me to buy shoes and then we practiced for 2 hours. The shoes made a world of difference…Frank thought it was more his instruction….Ha, Ha!

Have a good week! See you soon….

Thank you for a fabulous time...

Hello Sandra,

I would like to let you know that I had a fabulous time in the Milonga last night.

The venue, the people, the conversations, the food, the music and the dancing were all enjoyable. In addition, the promotion of multi-culture - giving out red pockets for the Chinese New Year was noted and appreciated!

I also enjoyed dancing a little bit of other Latin dances – Cha cha, Salsa, Merenge, Cumbia and Rumba. Thank you.

I look forward to attending the next Milonga. Hopefully, you and I could dance a song or two.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

forwarded from Anthony re: The Argentine Tango

Hi Anthony;

I enjoyed your Tango demonstrations, you are poetry in motion on the dance floor.

I really appreciated having the opportunity to share your table & visit with you in addition to receiving your patient Tango instructions.

It is very gracious of you to offer to teach me to dance the Argentine Tango and I am enthusiastically looking forward to mastering this very expressive Dance.

I realize that You are celebrating The New Year of The Tiger and The Olympic games are also being televised, however, I will make myself available at your convenience.

Hi Sandra & Ralph;

Thanks to You & Ralph for hosting a beautiful event.

Sandra's untiring organizational abilities combined with Executive Chef Ralph's culinary expertise set the tone for a delicious evening of music for tango.

Anthony's dance instruction was also much appreciated and I had a fabulous time.

Congratulations for hitting another home run,

Gung Hay Fat Choy to you too Ron,

Thanks for the praise. Remember, it is the lady that makes a guy look good on the dance floor, ALWAYS.

Glad to contribute, Sandra and thanks for the invitation. You and Ralph and become a very important social centre for tango in Calgary very quickly!


Sorry I left early. I've been working very long days during the week, part of the weekend, because a broker has left and I'm taking over his book. That is on top of my regular work and although it's rewarding it's very tiring! As well, I've been fighting sinusitis for weeks now (I really don't like taking antibiotics), so I need lots of sleep.

Take care, see you on the dance floor soon,

David

Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 1:28 AM

Hello Sandra,


Thank you for having us. I really had a good time,, food was good, wine was good, and the company was excellent. The discussion at the end was really interesting..hi.hi
The muffins reached our home. I defend them in the car from Dragos...he,he,he. Izabela said that you are an excellent cook . She really enjoyed the Shepard's pie.

We look forward to meet again in the near future.

Hi Sandra;

I will look forward to being with You & Ralph on the evening of March 20th/2010.

Thank you for your kind assistance & patience teaching me The Tango.

I will see you thursday evening for the Practica.

Cheers!

Ron

On 25-Feb-10, at 11:14 AM

Hi Ron!

I'm so pleased you'll be joining us for the Mardi Gras Milonga!

We have all been where you're at, but part of the Tango spirit is to share that joy. In Tango, you are always learning.

It is a pleasure to see your enthusiasm and there is no doubt with guidance from Anthony, Tess and Frank plus your keen desire to Tango, it will soon flow.

It is practice, perseverence and more practice, but there is no doubt - you will develop into a beautiful Tanguero, especially with your tall frame and long legs.


We believe in you and know, the butterfly that resides within will emerge.

See you this evening!

Sandra

Hola Guylene, Sandra, Ralph,

Couldn't make it to tango tonight because I'm packing for a four day trip to Banff - leaving

tomorrow and reutrning Sunday - and then for my trip to AR, which leaves Monday morning. I'll be

back for the next tango night at DQ March 24, dance on in the meantime!

Sandra and Ralph, hope your next milonga is a smashing success!

abrazo,

David

Thu, Mar 4, 2010 at 1:26 PM

Hello Sandra!!!

How are you?

Thanks for your e-mails and for the reminder for the Tango Practica on Thursdays and Sundays.

I will be there on Sunday for sure.!!! I will not be able to go on Thursdays because I have some classes in Bow Valley at that hour.

By the way, I would like to confirm my assistance to the Milonga on March.

The last Milonga was incredibly beautiful. I enjoyed every part of it: the decorations on the tables, the music , the food -which was so delicious- and the most important part: all the people who made an extraordinary atmosphere.

Everybody was still there at 1am. It is a pity that I had left because the cab was already there waiting for me, but for the next Milonga I will take the necessary previsions to leave it later.

:D

Thanks again for such incredible organization, for your effort and enthusiasm to organize it, a marvelous option that is already lighting the Tango life in Calgary.

Regards,

JUAN CARLOS

... much more to be posted

Hi Sandra and Ralph,

THANK YOU so much for bringing in Marcos and Ruta to Calgary for not only are they such super nice people, they are incredible teachers! Over the years, I have taken many dance disciplines and private lessons and I believe that they are simply the best ... at least for the way I learn.

Thank you too for a wonderful evening last night. You and Ralph have done a wonderful job in organizing the event ... you both also looked super last night.

Wishing you both big success in all your future endeavors!

Regards,
Cynthia
