Season 3: Episode 17: Choices in the Unknown

 

Have you ever had to make a Sophie’s Choice? What feelings intrinsically come along with being forced to choose one essential life necessity over another? Louise delves deep into the experience through personal journal notes and the teachings of grief in the face of impossible choices. She shares shocking information about what it takes to wean off a ventilator. And she poses a provocative challenge to the physical rehab teams. You will also hear from Margaret Apple, a mom at the Shepherd Center at the same time Louise and Archer were there, and her recollections of her time of great uncertainty about the future of her son. Join Louise as she explores the moments that allowed her to step back and see the broader picture and gain new insights into what is possible.

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Margaret Apple, a mother of a son who had suffered a traumatic brain injury around the same time as Archer’s injury who was also a patient at the Shepherd Center. Her happenstance connection to Louise allowed both to open space to the grieving process and to be vulnerable about their doubts and uncertainties.

Season 3: Episode 16: Margaritas for Trauma Healing

BOE_Google_Slides7hxse.jpg

Sometimes blessings and support come in the most unexpected forms, and from the most unlikely sources. A phone call in the middle of the night, or a fast-food frozen margarita with near-strangers – this might be all we need to remember we are not alone in the journey. Join us again while we continue the journey at the Shepherd Center, where you will hear sage advice from other SCI families along the way, like Kelly Sydnor, whom you heard a wise text from back in Episode 15. Guide your spirit to a place of rest as you learn about the importance and power of receiving care and support from people who have been in similar circumstances. Your Blink of an Eye Family is here to lend you a hand too.

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

Kelly Sydnor, a fellow mother of a son who has tetraplegia.  Thanks to a surprise connection of an old college friend of Louise’s, Kelly, a then stranger, reached out to Louise in her crisis as way of giving back in gratitude to those who helped her and her son navigate the quadriplegia path.  She offered Louise a guiding hand along the arduous path of negotiating through the medical sphere while at the Shepherd Center based on her own similar experiences.  She is now a dear friend of Louise, as well as a wonderful source of advice and wisdom for Mom’s of kids with SCI.

Season 3: Episode 15: I Want To Breathe On My Own

BOE_Google_Slides-8anggo.jpg

 

Trauma stories are full of ups, downs and flashbacks. Today, we want to bring the Blink of an Eye story back to Day 51 at the Shepherd Center. Join us for a moment of rest, as Louise recaps and reminiscences about coming back to the rehabilitation hospital room and the uncertainty which lingered around their stay. Hard realizations of change are accompanied by slow acceptance and mournful, necessary tears. Hear from those who eased the unsettling experience, including powerful songs and short escapes from the constant alarms of monitors. We hope this episode touches you as it touched us, and that your moment of rest is restorative and clarifying for your journey. Sending love.

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Dr. Angie Arnold, an adult psychiatrist whose practice is comprised of women patients in Atlanta, Georgia.  Hear how Louise and Angie met, and how their friendship grew during Archer’s time in the Shepherd Center.  Listen in for Angie’s observations and how she and Louise created brief moments of normalcy amidst deep grief and uncertainty.

Season 3: Trauma Healing Learning 14: Birth Memories with James Radde

BOE_Google_Slides-4ba4d5.jpg

 

As humans, we are inherently curious about how we came into this bright and complex world. More often than not, we rely on stories from our family or haphazard, poor-quality videos taken after our births in the delivery room. Occasionally, we are even left wondering with seemingly no information at all. If only there were a way we could remember what it was like actually to exit the womb and enter the world. Well, some people do remember, and these are “birth memories.” They are quite extraordinary. Listen in to this Trauma Healing Learning for ways in which you may still recall your birth memories or for ways gently to ask a young child what their experience was like. Louise and James Radde, a Jesuit Priest, will take you on a story-filled journey, which describes the elusive subject of memory, healing past trauma, power currency, generational trauma and more. You don’t want to miss this rare opportunity for conversation about deep matters of the heart and social topics that receive very little attention for the perpetuation of a legacy of societal trauma. Join our Blink of an Eye family in exploring new, ground-breaking pathways for healing.

Season 3: Episode 14: How Disability Shifts Perspectives

BOE_Google_Slides-374o5t.jpg

 

The process of changing your worldview is never easy. Introspection is not often a comfortable process, but then again, change never really is for many of us, and yet it’s change that keeps us growing, keeps us living. If you’ve ever experienced a transformation of perspective, you know what it can be like to reflect, channel empathy and even feel a little embarrassment for your past self. Don’t go it alone. Join Louise in her journey of how disability shifted her perspective from Baltimore to Shepherd, to Disneyworld and back again, all in under 48 hours. Follow along on the flight of a lifetime, as told by Louise’s Personal Journal Notes and a Family and Friends Update. You also won’t want to miss a special gift and why it was such a surprise from a litigation lawyer. 

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Judy Condliffe, an attorney mediator in Baltimore, MD who had attended Louise’s 40 Hour Certified Mediation Courses many years before Archer’s injury as a tough litigation lawyer turned mediator who gifted Louise a hand-made, knitted blanket when she heard the news. Judy, a professed Atheist had knitted into the blanket for Louise the “Archer Strong” letters, a row of hearts, a row of crosses. Listen in to Judy and Louise’s subsequent conversation about faith, art and goodness for a touching moment of inclusivity and connectedness for all of us.

Season 3: Trauma Healing Learning 13: Nutritional Response Testing for Trauma Healing and SCI with Dr. Mary Ann Ley

BOE_Google_Slides-2a1sxm.jpg

 

What if there were a way to know which healing supplements your body liked and disliked? It would be invaluable for the healing process, as well as overall body health. You could avoid substances that may slow your body’s recovery from trauma. Well, nutritional response testing is a way to bridge this tricky gap between the mind and body. It can even allow patients to identify specific organs suffering from trauma, to discern certain foods, objects and words that resonate with the body’s healing and more. In this episode, you'll hear from Dr. Mary Ann Ley, a practitioner trained in the art of nutritional response testing and chiropractic medicine, among a host of other healing methods. Join Louise as you walk along the path of relational wanderings with a clinician and her patient, as they share trauma healing wisdom, including birth stories, scar treatment and indirect testing for those with quadriplegia. Yes, that's right. Tune in for the miraculous ways in which another person can even become a conduit for someone with paralysis, so that they may be able to experience the benefits of nutritional or muscle response testing too.

 

Our theme music is Victoria Vox.

Season 3: Episode 13: Going Home Part 2

BOE_Google_Slidesb4rnf.jpg

 

The feeling of coming home after you’ve been away at battle is like a warm sensation of solid safety. Coming home is also a reminder of what it is like to be seen, to be known as who you are, and to be reminded of the lives you’ve touched and the lives that touch you back. It can also be a whirlwind of conflicting emotions, as coming home isn’t always stress-free. Join Louise in the second part of her heart-warming, yet heart-breaking, return home and hear from the people who help her achieve solace in a number of different ways. You’ll also experience what an established personal care team can look like, as having one is often crucial to the trauma healing process. Warm hugs, a place to break down, watching a water lily bloom and getting a great haircut are all healing experiences. You'll hear about muscle response testing too, and its role in restoring the body to good health.  Recovering from trauma is a personal journey, and it’s all about what feels right for you. We hope these Blink of an Eye examples grasp you by the hand and lead you down your own path of healing and refortification.

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Ellen Webb, a long-time neighbor, friend and “sister,” as Louise describes in the first part of Going Home. Ellen was on a walk at the time of Louise’s arrival to Baltimore, and she offered heartwarming support during what was an emotional return to the Senft family home.

 

Sue Ebert, Louise’s hairdresser and a member of her healing circle. Sue shares her memories of a particularly impactful appointment with Louise, and she also discusses the powerful healing elements of human touch.

 

Dr. Mary Ann Ley, a trained Chiropractor and Nutritional Response Testing practitioner and part of Louise’s healing circle in Baltimore whom she returned to during the intense ICU days. Listen in to Dr. Ley’s companion Trauma Healing Learning interview to learn about the body’s wisdom to let you know what is not good for you by testing the muscles, and to hear first hand accounts of the power of the healer’s intention.
