    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.

    oh SB! I am sure it was beautiful! It seems this post went up a number of times...technology can be finicky.

    my heart goes out to you and your family. i cannot begin to imagine the heartache of what isolation can do to a family. I am keeping her in my thoughts.

    with you

    I'm really sorry that you aren't yet able to hold your beautiful granddaughter but I am glad you were able to see a video of her. I'm sure they are being extra cautious right now because she's so young. My pediatrician's advice for my healthy babies has been to keep them in the house and limit visitors for the first 2-3 months of life. So I can only imagine if that's the advice for someone with a healthy baby that they would have to be that much more strict for someone with a baby that has a compromised immune system. But that doesn't mean it will be forever. I will pray that they are able to treat her so that she can live a normal life and that you can see her as soon as it's safe for her. I know this can't be easy for you. ((((SB))))
