Episode 32: Peripheral Friends

blink-1024x512-ep32.png

Sometimes, support comes from the places you least expect it. The crisis that had Archer in a Silent Scream has passed, at least for now, but Louise has no more answers from the medical team than she did yesterday. She’s also worried about all the narcotics her son has been prescribed. The nurses tell her to ask the doctors, but even the doctors aren’t forthcoming. She isn’t alone, though, not really. This episode is about the friends, even those on the outskirts of our lives, who support us when we can’t support ourselves anymore — sometimes even literally, in the case of Mary Ellen McNally. She questions when to speak up with medical staff and how to do that without alienating or pointing fingers.  And she reflects on life: Faith and hope, and learning when and how to speak up when things don’t feel quite right. 

In this episode, you will hear excerpts of interviews with the following people:

Cathy Giannascoli, a friend in Pennsylvania and the Senft family’s summer neighbor in Cape May, New Jersey.

Mary Ellen McNally, an analytical chemist for Dupont at the time of Archer’s accident, who now works for FMC in their agriculture division. Mary Ellen was one of Louise’s beach friends when Archer was injured on August 5, 2015, in Cape May.

Dr. Raymond Talucci, who was the Acting Chief of Trauma at AtlantiCare Hospital in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the day Archer was medevaced there, and for the duration of his stay.

Join Louise for this episode of Blink of an Eye: Episode 32: Peripheral Friends. August 12. Day 8.

Listen in afterwards to this week’s companion episode for tools to navigate your own traumatic experiences: Trauma Healing Learning: Peripheral Friends where Louise explores secondary trauma, compassion fatigue, and addiction, with a special focus on frontline trauma workers and why medical staff might rely so heavily on narcotics for pain management and the deeper implications for trauma healing.

That’s when angels step in. Louise’s beach friend, Mary Ann McNally was in the right place at the right time to catch Louise as she collapsed. How they ended up in the perfect place for each other is what you will hear about. What Louise didn’t know, is that she was the gift to Mary Ellen as well.
