I'm sure U.W. has information. They're really good with spinal cord injury stuff.
You want to be really great? Then have the courage to fail big and stick around. Make them wonder why you're still smiling

I saw a specialist there and asked the same question but the office staff just looked blank. Maybe i should ask around more but felt that they should know about that sort of thing.

  • Spinal Injury Level:mother in law

Posted 01 February 2011 - 05:10 AM

I am a family member and just had this conversation the other day. I was told that the UW use to have a monthly meeting/forum but was cancelled because not enough people attended. I think some of the problem is one never knows how the day is going to go... My son in law (c5 complete) would be interested (i think), maybe someone should try to do an informal 'Meet Up'.

There is/was one at UW Medical Center. I live in Anchorage, AK, but was sent to UWMC for my rehabilitation. I attended a monthly meeting while I was there. There was probably 30+ SCI's there. They cover a new topic every month. Bowel/bladder care, transfering, pressure sores, etc. I've searched for such a group here in Alaska, but haven't been lucky.

I'll see if I can dig up the info on that support group, maybe they're still around...
Don't ever let your past, get the chance, to get you down. Just keep moving forward. You just gotta keep on climbing.
Never look back, to take a glance. Don't turn around. Because only fools can manage to trip on something that's behind them.
