    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.

    We changed up the health plan

    DH and I walked up to school this morning and had lunch with DD. We got a good eyeball view of the setup in the cafeteria and what her classmates are like. Those tables are really big. We decided to forgo the "rule" on her health plan that she has to have an empty seat between herself and the next kid. Those guys are not slobbering all over each other like the Kindergardeners were, so we think she'll be OK. She was really excited to hear that - I imagine she's had to sit and scream at the kids closest to her just to be heard in that zoo.

    You guys are brave entering the cafeteria during lunch time. I can only imagine the noise level. Lily probably loved having you there, though!

    Glad that things are looking so good that she can sit next to others now.

    Good for you! And good for Lily! I hope it works out!
