Not sure if a kidney stone can be compared to a 10 pound baby

Good Morning, Post-'Piners.

Downhill slope of the week you know.
Coasting right along now to the Weekend!

So marked:
Days to the Season: 216
Days to Christmas Day: 258
Tomorrow, the 1/3 Christmas day mark will be just two weeks away.
The day after tomorrow, we will be down to 2 weeks until the 200-day Season Milestone is reached.
Keepin' on movin'!

The near hot weather continued yesterday.
In fact, it would have been uncomfortable were it not for the low humidity.
It is supposed to be a tad cooler today.
We are already at 64 degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Thrilling Thursday, Friends!

Oh yea, you got me there! 10 lbs...sheeesshhh, that's a bundle there... Let's see, the last words my wife said to the Anesthesiologist during the delivery of our second as the epidural kicked in was ..."I Love You....

I believe both of our children were around 7.6 lbs ea. The first one, my son, she unexpectedly delived natural, well, with a local injection only! She went to 2cm dialated to 8cm in about 2.3 seconds and the doctor was not at the hospital yet.

They had to assemble an emergency team from the staff on duty to delivery him and the umbilical cord was wrapped twice around his neck. So everytime she had a contraction, it was choking him. We almost lost him that day, he was delivered without a sound from him and they worked on him for about 30 minutes before we heard a cry. If it wasn't from the skill of the staff there on duty there that day, we would have possibly lost him...

So, I remind myself all the time, (now that he's a 20 year old and when you know just acts like, well, a 20 year old) Thank the lord for miracles!

Oh xmastidings, that story about your son is so scary. Thank God he was alright. You are blessed, what a miracle.
I had a situation with the birth of my middle daughter that was very similar to your wifes. I dialated very fast, when the doctor got there he told me to start pushing! I clearly remember thinking to myelf this is barbaric, how can they not give me something to take! I had her 100% drug free. She was just under 10 pounds. Her head measured 14 inches around. I remind her of that day often, lol.
Sorry if that was TMI this early in the morning!

Its raining here too. I'm kind of happy because it cooled off a bit. It got way too hot, too fast for me.
Hope you have a great day Christmasstar!
