Stacey, I can identify with you on the pain and anguish. My husband is getting tired of my complaininng and being in pain, along with running to e.r's so much, and being told there's nothing wrong. My mom passed away in Aug.1999 from a bad triple bypass. She suffered fo 4 months. I look back on this, and fear I'll be the same way, but not from bypass. I miss her so much. Millie
