If your XML is ina variable xStringH then you can use LINQ to get these values, e.g
Dim Result = From x In xStringH.Descendants() Where Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(x.@key)
            Select New With {.xKey = x.@key,
                             .xParent = x.Name.LocalName,
                             .xDescription = x...<DESCRIPTION>.Value}

Open in new window

And you get the anonymous type:
