BOE_Google_Slides-2b3y03.jpg

Episode 10 gives you a close up look at medical interactions both raw and heartwarming and their impact on quality medical care. You’ll also hear a surprising cardiac benefit of the feeling of connection. Join Louise in learning about how to set up a frequent flier system to bring far away loved ones to the hospital bedside and her insights on ORANS and learning to receive. This installment in the Archer Story is also a ‘Thank You Letter’ to all of those who donated their Frequent Flier Miles to the Senfts in a time of crisis and the need for familial closeness. You will also hear about shocking arrogance in the medical profession with doctors hiding behind jargon and undermining medical treatment at other facilities and the impact of such undermining on patients health. Tune in to also hear shining examples of doctors practicing relationally and the uplifting difference that makes in patient relations as you hear from Archer’s cardiac surgeon at AtlantiCare and what it meant to him and Louise when he took the time to learn about Archer’s journey. You won’t want to miss hearing how patients can communicate with doctors in situations of unresolved medical conflict as well as how Spinal Cord Injury and Rehab doctors could collaborate to create greater well-being. 

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Jessica Dibb, A dear friend and divine connection of Louise’s. Jessica is also a healer and an expert in breathwork. She and her 92 year old father were part of the journey the day before Archer was injured with taking part in the ORANS way, which Louise and Billy adopted as the posture of being open, on the cover of their book Being Relational and the ironic twist or divine intersection of events when Archer was injured. Jessica was part of Louise’s healing team she assembled for Archer outside the hospital during some of the most tumultuous times while Archer was struggling to breathe.

 

Ned Insley, The father of Archer’s good friend, Jeffers Insley. Ned helped Louise a great deal in getting Archer’s friends down to the Shepherd Center by becoming command central for a large Frequent Flier system. In doing so, he was part of Archer’s care team lifting Archer’s spirits and boosting his heart rate. 

Dr. Mohamed Elnahal, A cardiac surgeon committed to patient care and relationships at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. He is skilled in the implant of pacemaker devices, and Louise consulted him about Archer’s in a time of need and confusion on the subject and he implanted Archer’s pacemaker.

Season 3: Episode 6: Like An Archer And His Arrow

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_57_94oj3.jpg

As Louise and her friend Dede sat in the waiting room while Archer was in surgery, the two prayed the rosary. Looking into each other’s eyes, they focused and imagined Archer’s healing.  All of these setbacks were just bumps along the way, Louise reminded herself. In this episode of Blink of an Eye, spend some time with Louise as she ponders with a young medical staff woman that in order to move forward, often we have to be pulled back. You’ll also hear about continued struggles with pain management and alternative medical approaches including a powerful interaction between Louise and her friend Jessica Dibb on medical meditation. 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

Jessica Dibb, Director of the Global Breathwork Alliance and Louise’s close friend, who offered Louise spiritual support and wisdom on internal healing. She and Louise speak about their correspondence on these days in the story and the trust that was built between them for Louise to push the boundaries on medical advocacy.

Deidre Provosty Jasmin, Louise’s close college friend and one of the Atlanta Angels, who came to visit Louise as Archer was undergoing another complicated surgery. She and Louise speak about the story behind the rosary Dede pulled out of her purse, and the powerful moment of prayer in the hospital waiting room.
