Thanks for the link Lynnwood, Usually when I try to find information I end up more confused than when I started. I did go to a doctor once after I looked up some info on the internet and he told me to quit trying to diagnose myself! I actually wasn't but I wanted to participate in my own health care. I never went back to him again.

Thanks much for sharing such good info. I am a nurse teacher and emailed it to myself at work. I will build it into a lesson plan!
