Sweet Relief.....
The minute the show finished airing I could breathe again!! What a surreal feeling watching myself go through all those events again, at some moments it felt as though I was back on the ledge feeling what I felt at that exact moment and the tears flowed. I found myself getting really emotional watching it all unfold....
Head to CBC check out the blog for more entries, behind the scenes footage and to watch the entire episode....http://www.cbc.ca/now/episode1.html

Loved the show! Loved YOU in the show! You were so brave. I was like, "there is NO WAY they would get me to do that stuff", camera or not!

Party?!? What Party? I didn't hear about no party!!... :) Just joking. Glad you had fun with your family & friends and that you felt loved and supported.

I LOVED watching it too. You were absolutely incredible. I also really liked that you were with an encouraging partner (well, when he encouraged you over the walkie-talkies before you did the zip line thing...making you go first over the lip of the mountan -- I was like COME ON -- BE A MAN!!). You were so brave to go first and I was inspired by you. I also have a fear of heights, but I highly doubt that I could've done what you did.

AMAZING. That's what you are -- plain & simple. I even had tears well up a few times...tears of fear for you and tears of being so happy for you for what you were able to do.

You rock!

it's a gong show... said...

What a show! I let the girls stay up late (we watched it at 9:30) and Abbey was so pumped that Kezia's mom was going to be on REAL TV. She kept saying to me, "mom, this is real ya know?! it's not just tv." Too cute! I had tears in my eyes through the whole show. I couldn't imagine the anxiety and fear that you must've felt conquering this. Unbelievable! You're awesome Louise and just the way you encouraged your partner on the show, it was fantastic!

Great job, Louise! It was so awesome watching you conquer your fear! I, too, have a huge fear of heights....maybe someday I'll follow in your footsteps! You did awesome.

:) oh my -- is this really my 4th comment in one day? :)

i just wanted to ask you if an experience like that taught you so much for then the reason your were doing it. does that make sense? like -- you did the show to conquer your fear of heights -- but didn't you gain soooo much more then that through the process?

it's huge!

Your party was great! It was so awesome to be there with you as you relived the experience. What an emotional ride. I was all choked up for like half the show. You are inspiring and amazing. I'm STILL proud of you!

What a great show! The whole family watched it because "you know that is Kezia and Noah's Mom" to funny, even when Jordan saw Kezia and Noah at the beggining of the show she was so excited! I had tears well up often, you were amazing! Oh by the way your new hair color is beautiful! It is such a deep rich color, I love it!
