Thank You all for your replies.

I knew the word meant ...... urgency, on the double, as fast as you can, without delay, extreme situation, etc, etc, but I didn't know that it wasn't an acronym. My wife and I have been trying to figure out what the acronym "STAT" stands for. Now, Thanks to you guys, we don't have to rack our brains anymore.
Tonight, I'm going to ask my wife to meet me in our bedroom "STAT"!!!
