So I had an emergency kidney stone removal this past Friday. I had a conversation with one of the Nurses. She said she had 2 kids and one kidney stone. She also said the kidney stone (and its healing process) hurt much worse than having either child. So the next time your spouse says men can never have a level of pain that a woman gets in labor, you can tell her that there are some of us out here experiencing worse.

Part two of the Whammy

My wife was admitted to the hospital on Saturday with a burst appendix and a high fever. It seems that she will be staying in the hospital for most of two weeks and then in Sept she will have surgery to remove the appendix.

It has been an exciting weekend.
