    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!

    WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? When it rains it pours, etc. Poor Debbie, not the best surprise. Poor Mardee. Poor Kim's Michael. And I can think of a couple more victims of this bad luck streak. Time to start throwing salt over our shoulders and rubbing a (fake) rabbit's foot.

    I'm glad Deb is going to be okay. I hope this "run of bad luck" that a lot of us are having ends soon! I think I'm part of it. I got my tire fixed, got over my cold, had a good weekend finally, and in the middle of it my best computer had a thermal event and died. So now both of us have to share a little old netbook that is still faithfully chugging along. Plus an ant infestation... the spouse has a lingering fever.... on and on...

    So here's to all of us having better luck from here on, and here's to Deb's swift recovery! I'm very glad she can get the surgery she needs.
