#CPChatNow Recap- 01-27-2021

If you missed the live weekly cerebral palsy (CP) Twitter chat #CPChatNow Wednesday, January 27th, 2021, relax. You remain in good company! In fact only my co-host Devin Axtman and myself, Zachary Fenell, actively participated. Nevertheless, I still wanted to provide you your weekly recap. All aboard!

As the chat began Devin and I found ourselves making some references to an interest we share.

Zachary and Devin make wrestling references.

Admittedly, I am the guilty party who originated the wrestling dialogue. However, understanding the occasional lurker follows along with the chat, I figured we better get back on course. Knowing the right question can inspire lurkers to evolve into active participants.

Devin and Zachary discuss winter's impact on them.

Devin offered a huge assist in bringing the dialogue back to cerebral palsy matters, asking me how winter had been treating me. As the winter chatter progressed, we both noted the cold makes our muscles extra tight. What about you? Answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question, “How does winter impact you the most?” Leave your response in the “Comments” section.

In addition to discussing winter, I brought up an article I recently read.

Devin and Zachary discuss a recent KARE 11 news story.

KARE 11 covered a story about how special technology helped a young girl with cerebral palsy order her own food for the first time. Their coverage impressed me because the news team managed to capture the moment’s significance oppose to emptily praising the story as inspirational. An assessment Devin agreed with. Feel free to tell us what you think in the “Comments.”

Also, remember to answer the extend-the-conversation question while commenting. Again, this week’s question asks “How does winter impact you the most?”
