Retrieval is done

Mr. Hope here subbing for Mrs. Hope. Retrieval went well. We got 17 eggs that will be ICSI’ed later today. Dr. Scrubs said the laminaria placement was “extraordinarilly easy.” Mrs. Hope had some fairly intense pain from the laminaria afterward, so she’s still loopy from the extra pain killers (that’s why I’m writing for her). The countdown is on until it comes out.
