Louise and Archer had been flown on a medijet to Atlanta, Georgia, home of the Shepherd Center, on a tailwind of prayers and support from family and friends across the country. But their story doesn’t end here at the gate of this SCI rehab. In Season 3: Episode 2: Every Aspect, Every Molecule, Archer, Louise and their family experience both relief and shock as they settle in at the Shepherd Center. Surprised and buoyed by a few of Louise’s friends from her sorority days at UVA, they begin a new chapter of Archer’s recovery, one filled with many medical experts, unexpected questions, surprises and sorrows.
In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:
Allyson Andrews Watson, a friend of Louise’s from UVA college days, who went to the Shepherd Center and got permission to set up a guest room for her with flowers and food. Allyson and Louise speak about Allyson’s previous connections to the Shepherd Center and the ways life comes full circle.
Deirdre Provosty Jasmin, another friend of Louise’s from UVA college days, who was first on the scene at Shepherd Center with a to-go bag of lunch. She and Louise talk about the importance of taking care of the person taking care of the injured family member.
