We had a great spring meeting. Margaret McGovern-Denk (MS,OTR/L Northwestern Clinic) gave us a beautiful presentation on exercising and stretching given neuromuscular conditions. She also covered Spasticity Challenges and options. With several members in the hospital or recovering from Baclofen pump, members discussed their personal pump problems and experiences. We also discussed a number of other items of interest including hand controls for the car.

We had 13 in our group for this meeting which was held in the Buffalo Grove Arboretum clubhouse. For lunch we ordered Jimmy Johns’ subs and had the driver take the connection picture. For our fall meeting several from Wisconsin have expressed an interest in attending and are most welcome. By each of us sharing we have learned a lot.
