Season 3: Episode 18: Friends Therapy and Frequent Flier Miles for Rehabilitation

 

You might not know the lengths to which a friend might go to carry you through a hard time. You also might not anticipate the way a crisis can create creative responses you never could have imagined. Come along with us as we journey outside the Shepherd Center and celebrate the heroes, young and old, who kept Archer, who was still struggling to breathe on his own, inspired. You might find surprising inspiration and ideas for how you can be part of a hope lifters campaign for a high schooler in your community who is battling a catastrophic injury who needs you now.

 

This episode features interviews with:

 

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. 

 

Ollie Abramson and Price Campbell, two of Archer’s close friends who were among the first to visit him in Atlanta at the Shepherd Center.

Season 3: Episode 10: Frequent Fliers, Jump Hugs and Doctor Connections for Powerful SCI Rehab

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 4: The Feeling of Home

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_52_8v3q3.jpg

If you can’t be at home, why not bring home to where you are? That’s what Louise started to do for both herself and Archer in this episode of Blink of an Eye — both consciously and subconsciously. As the Shepherd medical team struggled with finding pain management options for Archer’s unending pain and started preparations for his delicate sinus surgery, Louise found herself connecting with Baltimore community members about future visits to Atlanta. An old friend from the Order of Malta stops by as Louise unravels and he provides her with unexpected spiritual support.

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

Ned Insley, father of Archer’s friend Jeffers Insley in Baltimore, Maryland.  He and Louise speak about the beginnings of coordinating frequent flier airline miles, the snafus and workarounds, and the system for shuttling Senft family members and Archer’s friends to and from Atlanta. 

Diane Festa, a friend of the Senft’s from the Order of Malta and an Atlanta resident. She and Louise discuss Order of Malta member Monsignor Dillon’s visit to the Shepherd Center and their time in Lourdes, France.

Bonus Episode: Sea of a Million Lights…Montage

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_38_9z28w.jpg

Angels have their ways of working silently and quietly to make wonderful things happen. As Archer was declining at AtlanticCare, members of the Senft family’s Baltimore community were busy in the background organizing a prayer vigil. There were candles to be gathered and lit, a singer to be found and a venue to be organized and secured. In this episode, we hear from organizers and attendees about the powerful event hosted at Friends School Baltimore in the aftermath of Archer’s injury. Hear about what it took to organize the vigil amidst Louise’s updates, and how healing it was from the inside out, for those involved. 

Voices in this episode include:

Jackson Morrill

Kerry Leikus

Cathy Lobo

Paula Senft Easton

Ned Insley

Season 2: Episode 10: Little Breakthroughs

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_2_atduz.jpg

So much was going on, so much was uncertain and uneven as Louise mulled over the decision for Archer to have permanent pacemaker surgery and experienced collaboration with the medical team for the first time. There were tough decisions to make as the Senft family's community surrounded them with love and support in tangible ways. In Season 2: Episode 10: Little Breakthroughs, Louise takes a look back at the effort to move Archer to a larger room  — with help from his high school friends — and the other ways in which collaboration buoyed Louise, Archer and perhaps the medical team as well. 

In this episode you will hear interview excerpts from:

Dr. Ray Talucci, former Chief of Trauma at Atlanticare, and one of Archer’s main doctors at the time. He and Louise speak about the impact of their collaboration on the hospital years later.

Ned Insley, Louise’s friend and the father of Jeffers Insley, one of Archer’s good high school friends from McDonogh School. Ned works in manufacturing for Marine Enterprise International in Baltimore. 

Victoria Vox created the theme music.
