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.
