In the early morning before the dawn, after Archer’s cardiac arrest, Louise found herself called in a moment of blind faith to text her support system. The message was simple: pray hard. She didn’t expect to hear back at such an odd hour, but she did. And the responses were exactly what she needed to hear. In this second episode of Season 2, we will explore one reaction to crisis and trauma: when we focus on only what is essential - especially in communication, as that is often all that the traumatized person can take in, and what happens when we loosen the barriers that hold us back from believing what is possible. Join Louise as she also looks back at the texts she sent and received that night before the Code Blue. You’ll also meet her brother and hear his reflections on his essential communication with his sister in those early hours.
In this episode you will hear interview excerpts of:
Will Phipps, Louise’s brother and a horseman, who arranged a prayer circle at a racetrack in the morning after Archer’s cardiac arrest.
