{Retrieval Successful!!}

We're back . . . eggs are frozen . . . first stage accomplished. Everything went smoothly and, thanks to the lortab, my beautiful wife is now resting quietly in bed. Once again, she proved herself to be incredibly tough; I'm so impressed by her ability to handle all of this with ease. Other than some obvious pain and discomfort on the way home, she's been amazing during the whole process. I love you, Lindsey!!!!

In her drugged state, Lindsey held true to form, expressing all of her inner most fears and asking more questions than the nurses could answer. These included worrying about cysts made of chocolate (what?) and cysts with teeth (huh?) and culminated with Lindsey asking for clarification on how to pronounce the word "cryogenic." This even caused the kind nurse to smile and remark that she's "never had anyone ask for pronunciation clarification before." Lindsey, of course, responded, "I'm sorry. I'm a perfectionist."

Thank you to all who have expressed concern and offered help in a variety of ways.

YAY!! That is great news!!!

*snicker* Those questions are hilarious! Drugs can make you say weird things. But better that than being in pain!
