    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,

    Update on Josephine

    Josephine is doing amazingly well! She's been off oxygen for a little over a week, and out of the incubator for a week. She pulled her own feeding tube out twice last night, so they decided to leave it out, as long as she takes her food from either bottle or breast...so far, so good. She's up to 4 pounds, 6 oz, well over her birth weight of 4 pounds. Once she hits 4 pounds, 8 oz., they'll do her car seat test. As long as she keeps taking her food by mouth, we're getting close to going home! -Amber

    Well, Josephine came home on 2-7, just in time to watch the Super Bowl at home. :) We're doing well, although older sister is still not quite sure what to make of this new little person (she'd never spent time around babies). -Amber
