My name is Brian.  I'm 45 years old.  Born and raised in Albany, New York.  And I'm a kidney stone survivor. For those of you that have experienced this gut-wrenching horror, we are forever linked. Kidney cohorts if you will.  Now,  I'm not saying that passing a kidney is more painful than child birth, but multiple women have told me it's at least as bad.

With that being said, I decided to name my kidney stone.  No need to send me congratulatory gifts or anything like that, just know in your head, that I took that killer stone that was calcifying in my kidney and I kicked that sucker to the curb--err flushed it down the toilet.  It was the most painful 36 hours of my life and I survived it.  Humor me by at least enjoying a segment we did earlier in the week where we talked about the nightmare of 'male birth' and how I decided to name this demon-child.
