Season 3: Ask Louise Conversation 2: Meeting Families Where They Are in Recovery with Kim Hoog
What rules would you break to save a life, or lift your loved one’s spirits in crisis? Join us for Blink of an Eye Podcast’s series, “Ask Louise.” In this episode, we gain wisdom from Kim Hoog, another mom of a son with quadriplegia/tetraplegia, who gives practical advice for when and where to trust your gut and do what's right, even when an establishment might give you other marching orders. Louise and Kim walk you through the nuts and bolts of acute care SCI recovery, such as navigating feeding tubes, ventilators, communication systems, and the use of narcotics. The “Ask Louise” series is a place for you to join us as we gather community, support and answers in the face of Spinal Cord Injury in the early days and years of injury. Better yet, ask Louise anything! She believes in collective wisdom and will gather the right people for meaningful responses. Post on the wall of the “Ask Louise” Facebook page to have your question answered on the Blink of an Eye Podcast.
