Blessed be the fruit…

May the Lord open.

I went for the procedure this morning. It was so early but the staff was so kind to let me sleep. My mom was able to sit with me while I waited until it was time to go in. I was so worried that I would be more lucid but thankfully I was not.

I remember getting into the procedure room, lying down and being put into position. I remember getting the nose thing put on and saying “oh shit” and then I woke up back in the bed that I was waiting in and my mom was led back in to be with me.

I am so grateful that the procedure was able to be done today and that my mom was there with me. I would be so lost and afraid without her.

The doctor came in and told me I responded excellently to the injections and that I did amazing. They were able to retrieve 55 healthy eggies.

Yup.

That’s right.

FIFTY-FIVE.

After much prodding the nurse finally answered my questions:

Me: Is that normal? Is that a lot? How many do they normally get on average?
Nurse: I normally see about 8 to 10 to 12
Me: WHAT. THE. FUCK.
Nurse: Yeah.

Literally me (well, I’m like 5 eggs shy, but whatever you get it):

Kirkland Signature Cage Free Eggs USSA Grade AA

All jokes aside, I am happy that they are safe and that the procedure was quick. I’m in quite a lot of pain, but it was worth it.

I love you little eggies.

For those wondering, at the start of this process I agreed that I will preserve my eggs for use and any eggs that will not be used by me will be donated for research and other purposes. I wanted them to be donated for use but it wasn’t an option on the form. Perhaps I can talk to them about it in the future.

I am glad that I was able to save you little ones. Be safe. Know that I love you, okay? I’ll be back for you soon.

 

An update:
The nurse from RMA called. Of the 55 eggies 43 we’re mature and healthy enough for preservation. Thank God. Before the retrieval, the doctors consulted me by saying that it was typical that of the harvested eggs, 80% would be mature enough for preservation. They assured me that they are for my use and, when I am done with them, I may donate them. I am happy.
