Complex thread and STreamResponse.CanRead

I have a While statement that starts separate threads in code.
Anywhere from 5 to 10 threads

In each thread I have a HttpWebResponse and GetResponseStream with the stream left in an OPEN state with the canread (See code below)

I need to have some way of determining if a particular stream closes...OR the thread closes or fails. (Terminology???)

So inside sub 1
Dim th As New Thread(AddressOf startPhoneMonitoring)

Open in new window

And inside the startPhoneMonitoring sub
' The response object of 'HttpWebRequest' is assigned to a 'HttpWebResponse' variable. 
Using myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(sendWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

     ' Displaying the contents of the page to the consoleor sending to web service/sql proc 
     Using streamResponse As Stream = myHttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream()

          'Next Line tricks into staying in Response Stream Loop
          While streamResponse.CanRead

Open in new window

For thread, you can start another thread which keeps monitoring the ThreadState of all of these worker threads.

Not sure about the http connection though.

Thanks. I'll do a little grunt work and get that in place.
