Episode 9: Pray for Archer

Blink of an Eye Episode 9: Pray for Archer

No one called to tell her. Returning to the hospital from the first time she’d left Archer’s side, a pitstop at home for a few hours’ sleep and a shower, Louise was shocked and enraged at the situation she walked into. Tubes like garden hoses now protruded from Archer’s chest. Within a matter of hours, her son had undergone two emergency surgeries, and no one had called her. 

 

Feeling anger and bitterness surge through her like venom, Louise reminded herself to look for small mercies and sweet moments. One of her sons sat reading to his brother, who lay motionless next to him. Texts from friends. The power of a specific intention. The warmth of being called by name by someone who loves us. 

 

Even in chaos, even when your child looks like he is on a barbecue spit, grace and beauty surround us.

August 6. DAY 2. What can you do in the face of another’s tragedy? It’s the day after Archer’s accident, and Louise’s phone notifications are beeping and pinging with a life of their own. After contacting only a few close friends, the Senft family finds itself cradled in love and flooded with support as people they know, and countless people they don’t, people of all faiths and people without any faith-affiliation, storm Heaven with prayer and uplift the family in their loving thoughts. But Louise still has questions answered wonderings while Archer remains under the lingering effects of anesthesia.
