Rebecca,
I had a chance to check out the website you gave me. Wow! There was so much information, and I loved the journals from patients, listed by their doctor and insurance. Seeing the daily journals was great too, as I could see real ups and downs, including the complications and just plain awful days. I know it seems weird that I'd feel comforted by seeing the bad side, but it's my paranoid nature, to avoid things that sound too good to be true. I had a coworker in stitches, when I told her I would have been better able to deal with the doctor's telling me I had 7 minutes to live after my stress test, than having them refuse to discuss any of the results with me. I guess I've always had a very active imagination, and can always imagine much worse than the truth.
