After 3 weeks of painful labor, my wife delivered (by surgery) a healthy 5mm kidney stone on Saturday afternoon.

Suggested names were "Rocky", "Crystal", and "Pearl". I think I'm going with "Kevin". Why Kevin? Because I was once on staff with a pastor whose name is Kevin Stone.

Seems fitting.

My wife and I spent the better part of the day in urgent care and then the ER for severe abdominal pain (the full story later).

While doing her examination, the Physicians Assistant asked her some questions...

PA: Have you ever had any surgery in this area?

Wife: Yes, a hysterectomy.

PA: When?

Wife: 2002

PA: When was your last period?

I laughed (out loud). He was offended, then got defensive.

He musta missed anatomy and physiology in college... scary.
