    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.

    Went out on a limb today and called my parents' place. And my dad answered!!! (Mom was at a friend's place. Thank goodness.) We talked for half an hour about this and that, IU, the Super Bowl, baseball cards, I was in heaven. Did get some bad news though. )= He saw his cancer doctor last month and his white blood cell count is low again. )= It was 3.8 which is in the high low category, but it was 5.5 in November. Really really sucks. Plus his doctor was in a meeting so he didn't get to see him or his nurse practioner. But on the good side as far as we know the cancer is still in remission. He goes back in March for a regular follow up visit. Hopefully we'll get good news then. Got my fingers crossed and as Grandma always says "Saying my Hail Marys." She's a hoot isn't she?? No offense to any Catholics out there. Hope everyone is having a good day. Take care my friends.
