Mom, I'm so sorry for you and all the others who live up north with CP. I did a long time ago but when I realized I would be a complete cripple up there, I moved south, almost as far south as I could go. Southeast Fla. because its warmer than SW Fla. I wouldn't call it luck but I knew at a fairly young age when I was still able to move around and tryed Austin Tex. first. I loved it there but it was even too cold there, plus the ressesion of the mid 80's chased me here. When people tell me how beutiful the winters are up north, I tell them, "I'll watch them on TV thank you very much!" I remember that cold going right through me and the pain was just not worth it. I wish y'all living up there could be here at least for the winters. I know it's not possable but my prayers are with you. I hope it warms up!
