    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    HI David -

    Hope you and your wife are doing well - not sure what the weather is like there but we have had extremely wonderful weather - from the mid 30's to low 60's during the day and from upper teens to upper 40's at nite - I'm not complaining!!! LOL so much better than what we had the last 2 years with all the snow storms.

    I had noted that when Chris posted a pin note on the recalled items one of your pin notes is gone - this one contained links to help members look up terminology (MRI's, CT Scans etc) among other items.

    I have a different computer I am working from and I don't have those links -

    Would you be so kind as to post those? This way i can mark them in my bookmarks and will have them. I would appreciate it very much ~~

    Let us know how u and your wife are doing ~~ take care - Joy

    Hi, Joy.

    We're doing OK. My wife is continuing to have lots of lower back problems due to her work injuries. Workman's Comp has been very cooperative, thankfully. We have contracted a WC attorney just in case. She will be having facet block injections soon, hopefully next week, and is off work again for a few weeks. Hopefully the injections will help and she can return to work with less pain. My spine problems are no better, but no worse and that is OK.

    Here are the links:

    Lots of other things going on in our lives so I don't get on as much as I used to.

    Have a blessed and super Saturday!

    Hi Guys!

    Because I can only put up to topics at the top of the board at one time I had to let one of Dave's go. But it's a tip and not just a post so it's easily found to the right, under helpful tips.

    I just had to let one go, I apologize but I only have two spots up at the top.

    Chrissy - that's ok! I thought there was a reason that there could only be 2 pin points as that's all I've ever seen - I just hated that I had to reformat my computer and lost a lot of my bookmarks!! oh well that's what happens - thanks for the info - take care - Joy
    Chris_WebMD_Staff replied to bj1208's response:
    Oh I hate that tooooo! I missed the part where you said that! If I can find any other links for you let me know. Such a pain! Yeah I had to put that drug recall up, so something had to budge. I'm glad you asked! And Thanks Dave!!
