Tracking Events and Milestones in Life?

Hey there members!


We're compiling a list of all the events and milestones that our members like to keep track of in their lives. For instance, most of us like to keep track of birthdays of family and friends. Parents like to keep a record of when their children hit milestones, such as rolling over, first words, walking, cutting a tooth. And, many of us keep track of our medications, treatments and doctors visits. Members of our Breast Cancer community like to share with others when they have been "Cancer Free" for six months, a year, two years, and on.

Think about what you like to keep track of and milestones you like to share with your family and friends and post them here in this thread. I bet you all keep track of a lot of things our staff would never think of!



Can't wait to get your feedback.

Take care,

The WebMD Community Staff

I recieved my first kidney transplant 1 month and 1 week ago as of tomorrow at noon. The only milestone I've had so far, was my first bath in almost 2 years. The happiest moment of my year so far, especially since I also have Lupus and if horribly affects my joints. A nice bath was something I had been looking forward to.

I'm now waiting for my 2-3 month mark so I can get my blood drawn every other week instead of every monday and thursday.

Sincerely,
JBK
