What a wonderful day for an Anniversary!



Today was the BIG day, not only did we do our egg retrieval at Lilavati Hospital, but we also are celebrating our 8th Wedding Anniversary. (I am sure one we will never forget) I felt like a hen ready to lay her eggs. Everything went great, we ended up with 10 follicles, and they were able to fertilize 8 of those. Dr.Yashodhara was by my side the entire time and said the eggs were very good quality and the fertilization went well. Now we wait... The entire IVF team and hospital staff were amazing. The 2 docs that own the IVF Center will both be there to transfer the embryos on Thursday and give the little guys (or girls) an extra day to do their thing. I will be able to go in and be with our surrogate during the transfer. How amazing that will be! Gerry is able to go in as well, but has decided not too as he wants to give us girls some time to bond. After the procedure it was back to the hotel for some much needed rest. Our Anniversary meal was a pizza from Pizza Hut (which we thought was better then we get back home). That evening we had a surprise visit from Dr.Sudhir who brought us a small cake complete with a candle to celebrate. I gave the guys some bonding time in the bar while I rested some more.

All in all it was a fabulous day!

Rhonda and Gerry,
What a wonderful way to spend your anniversary!!!! Your docs sound amazing, and you've certainly got a lot of positive "vibes" with the overall cycle. A lot better than some of the ER's I've experienced, where I thought I should have a bar code on my forehead that they could scan as they pushed me through the IVF line....

(((hugs)) to you guys, and the wonderful people who are working so hard to help your dream come true. Good luck, good luck, good luck!!!!!!!!
