    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    We're celebrating Dads 75th birthday tomo at the city park with a big bbq. His b-day was on the 29th but middle of the week in 100+ temps wasn't happening. We also went to the dr on monday. I needed to get a script for a wheelchair. He's using a cane full time now but his balance is extremely off lately. Plus his memory is almost gone. He's not remembering names an faces of people he's around all the time, plus his speech is nonsensical at least half the time now. Taking care of him is becoming more time restrictive, so i'll b on as often as is possible.

    Happy 75th Birthday to your dad. I am sorry to hear that things are getting worse. Since my mom was in the hospital it seems that my time has been more and more filled as well. (not all mom related but some days it feels that way).
