I enjoyed reading that, too. Thanks for posting, Rich.

Oh, and I vote for saving it - mount it on the wall

You could use your Gladstone bag and stethoscope as the centrepiece of a career themed decorative feature. It could include your MD degree, graduation photo, etc. it could be enhanced by selected plantings (digitalis?) and a waterfall.

I wanted to be an interior designer before I went to medical school.

Sorry about your baby, Rich. Isn't it amazing how sights, smells, songs, etc. can activate sometimes long forgotten thoughts/memories?

Not a doctor, but I cannot agree with you. A kidney stone passing is not hard to hear, as it causes loud noises.

Yes, I am talking about the groans and moans, the "ARGHH!", "UH!" emanating from the mouth of the sufferer. You need a stethoscope for that?

Um, I did say the patient's OTHER noises.

As the old saying goes, pain is an output from the brain, telling you there is a problem. And the nervous system is amazingly good at pointing to the location of the problem.

The noises you describe could be the result of several causes. Just ask any doctor.
There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.

Thanks for sharing Rich. This medical device has a story to tell. Your story, for over 40 years. You used it on all kinds of people. Seems to me you should give it a place of honor.
