Thanks Patty. They've checked me for this one . . . thankfully the bloodwork was negative and the weakness has cleared. I don't get that channel, but maybe I can catch it online after it airs. Interesting stuff! I'm glad your post wasn't about you having been dx with it. *phewwww*

Check on their web site, you might be able to view the video after it's aired. Also if you have cable tv, try On Demand, it might get lucky and it be in there.
