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.
