I have two separate form. the fiorst form loads and then I have a button on that page that will go to the next form, The trick is that if I hit that button I hide the loaded form and open the new form. If I close the New form how can I get the loaded form back?
ElseIf GaugeModel.Contains("200") Or GaugeModel.Contains("SealGap") Then
                Dim form As New EditGages
                serialCOMDiscover.Close()
                ' Me.Hide()

Have you tried myForm.Show  ? you can also use My namespace to do that.
My.Forms.myForm.Show()

When you show the second form show it modally :
form2.ShowDialog
so the next line in the main form's code won't get executed till form2 is closed.
Then just make mainform visible again.
mainform.hide
form2.ShowDialog          'passes control to form2 where you would have form2.close
mainform.show
