#CPChatNow Recap- 10-31-2018

This past week’s #CPChatNow occured on Halloween and as you might guess, there was a lot of talk about Halloween and how it related to CP.  Members talked about costumes, trudging through the snow, and going up stairs.  Also, I burned my finger.  This is #CPChatNow Co-Host, Devin Axtman, and I’m taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap.

First, co-host Zachary Fenell tweeted about a cool Beetlejuice costume that incorporated a wheelchair.  Well done!

I shared my story of a burned finger due to an oven mishap and Zach and Hannah talked about difficulties with pot holders:

Next, talk turned to Halloween and Zach’s question of the most difficult part about Halloween with CP.

Jen answered Zach’s question by stating it was difficult to get to houses that had stairs.
