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.
