    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    How and Why to Report a Post
    just wanted to say

    I echo so much of what everyone has said here. There are pros and cons to it all.

    One thing i strongly agree with on a community board such as this is that it does need a moderator and especially one who can be biased.

    I think caprice holds (held) that roll very well as she had this same struggle a long time ago.

    One of the reasons I have been here is because it is a safe place!

    Because tomorrow is monday perhaps we will have answers then.
    I hope everyone will keep having fun wiht the elf answers! That was a really cute idea. I've seen it on fb and never done anything with it.

    God bless you all and keep you and please say a prayer for each other and collectively.

    I ask you to continue to pray for Kim and also to pray for my grandbaby. She should be ok but will reamin in the hospital for a week. Hard on mom and dad out there and everyone who loves then and baby.

    well thats all i got! God speed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    your grandbaby arrived? i don't remember reading anything about that. yay! i hope all is well.

    did kim regain consciousness?
    bubbles_bobble replied to slik_kitty's response:
    Yes she arrived dec 27 947 pm, brooklynn anika

    she's in icu but taking antibiotics and this will alleviate a potential furthering of her infection and shut it down god willing.

    kim did regarin consciousness and is moving her head from one side to other and squeezing fingers. a good sign.

    for these little ladies i merely wanted more prayers until we get to the point that they're manuevering the best they can.

    I didn't see that either. Congratulations!!! She & Kim are in my prayers!
    off_the_wall replied to bubbles_bobble's response:
    Congratulations on the granddaughter, BB! I think the name Brooklynn is very pretty! I'll pray that her infection goes away quickly. What is infected? Did her birth go okay? How is her mama? How big is she? When will you get to meet her?

    Sorry for all the questions, just excited for you.

    Stats on the grandbaby: aprox 20"? 6lbs something
    As of tonight she is starting to take the meds and metabolizing them so they think she will be released earlier than previously thought Yeah!
    She will hopefully within the next year start to make her own white blood cells on her own. Sounds really serious but I guess its a common occurance.

    I didn't have the abiltiy to check on kim tonight but I'm still praying she continues on the upward swing! If anybody new her they'd know that she really is a fighter. I believe in her and My grandbaby! The anika is prounounced ann i kuh.

    well i'm off to bed. thanks dem for the nice salute and everyone for their warmness. kinda been in outer space lately with these panic attacks and hopefully i've gotten that straightened out. we'll see ?? tomorrow if i wake up anxious or not??? couldn't change dressings tonight but i'll have to do it first thing tomorrow.
