We'll Call Him Petri

We just got back from the hospital. I feel way better than I hoped I would. Tired and moving kind of slow but otherwise pretty good. I was the most afraid of the anesthesia (sp?). The doctors were awesome and kept chatting with me and I went right to sleep. They gave me a medication that gives you amnesia so you can't remember anything during the procedure. When I woke up about 25 minutes later they were all done and gone. Someone put my good luck bear on my chest so I would see him. Then my mom was there and then Tom. I had to wait an hour to make sure I was okay. During that time they removed my wires and IV and Tom picked up my prescription for Tylenol 3. Then I got a progesterone shot in my bum. They came back and told us they got 15 eggs out. I was hoping for more but I am happy to have that many. They put them in 5 dishes, three in each dish. They will do ICSI (inject sperm) into 6 eggs and the rest will go to whichever sperm gets there first. I am supposed to call tomorrow and they will be able to tell me how many fertilized. I felt well enough after getting dressed to even have a sandwhich. Then I slept the whole way home. I am getting tired again. So that's all for now.
