So there I am, sitting at the kitchen table, when I get a text:
You have new lab results.
I took some blood tests earlier that day and the results were rolling in.
Curious, I clicked on the link.
My mom and dad were there (they’re retired doctors) and they asked me to read the results out loud.
I cleared my throat and read the first line:
As soon as I read those words, I stopped in my tracks.
My parents eyes widened.

What are they doing testing a 45 year old woman for pregnancy, anyway?
But there you go, an awkward family moment brought to you by Kaiser Permanente.
