Spinal Cord Injury Support Group: April 18th, 2007

Attending: Travis , Marcia, Cindy, Dave, Shelly, Todd, Nancy, Jace

Congratulations Dave Weiser, who just completed a grueling course for polygraph testing, which explains his long hiatus from SCI Support Group.

Watch out everyone! He can tell if you’re lying.

We started the meeting sharing stories about our most obnoxious handicapped parking experiences followed by a stroll down memory lane, sharing those dreaded bathroom accident stories that we have all come to know and …well at least laugh about. Only in SCI group!

Welcome a new member, Jase, who is interested in becoming a PM. Jase, a lawyer and in a chair for many years, has been a PM at several other hospitals.

Travis's surgery is next Tuesday so send tons of love & prayers for SUCCESS!

Dion, hope you’re recovering quickly from your surgery (if that’s possible). Hi Tara, we miss you both. How are those toe touches coming?

Ed is recovering from phrenic nerve surgery. Ed and Liz, love and prayers are with you for a great outcome.

Jean, we miss you! Come back soon. Love and prayers to you and Lenny.

Shelly L, started PT/OT, kick butt!
