    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,

    Hi everyone.....

    Hannah, I still keep in contact with Gary....poor guy is still being put through the ringer with health issues:( I'll let him know that you asked about him:)

    I have tried e-mailing Gin and have not gotten a response for months now. I'm not sure what happened.....I hope she is alright. It's just not like her....she used to be one of those that worried along with all of us if she didn't hear from someone for a few days. Maybe I will try one more time....hope I still have her contact info.

    Hope that your recovery is going well. How have you been feeling? Eating is still a bit of a struggle for me....stupid nausea....GGGGRRRRRR!!! I am gaining more strength each day. I still have days that my body just won't cooperate and I sleep all day....but that is ok. I'm sure that I am still in some state of sleep deprivation from my weeks in the hospital, and I know that I am a little dehydrated. At least I feel human for the most part now.

    Take care and big hugs!

    Hannah, I talked with Gary tonight and he asked if you would give your phone number so that he could call you. He also told me that it was ok to give you his number. If you want it, let me know and I will e-mail it to you....or you can e-mail me your number.

    He told me that he always has trouble getting on to this site. Something about already having an account with a different e-mail address. Anyway, he has tried...

    The same thing happened to me a few months back when I changed internets. I tried and tried, but finally gave the way, WebMD was the only site I had problem with as far as a new I had to start from scratch, used to be arbob2, and now I'm arbob5. Makes no sense to me, but I know how Gary feels. I still don't understand it at all.
