a little windfall

An envelope came in the mail from my IVF lab last week. Mr. Hope opened it; I didn’t even notice it in the stack of junk and bills.

It was a check. For $220. I’ve gotten reimbursed by them before – the 3rd fresh cycle, for example – we paid in advance for more than 10 eggs to be ICSI’d, but fewer were, so they sent a check for the difference.

But I wasn’t expecting this check. In fact, I called yesterday to make sure they really meant to send the check (knowing my luck, I’d cash it and they’d start billing me on a monthly basis!) some 16 months after my last IVF cycle. They did. Apparently, they charged me 2 embryo storage fees for 2007.

So I have a little windfall. You can bet I’ll do something “fun” with that.
