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.
