half a dozen grade a eggs

Just heard from the folks at Dr. Hope's office, and it's awesome news:

We have half a dozen viable, wonderful, freezable Grade A eggs embryos! 5 were rated "good" and 1 "fair" (on a good - fair - poor scale).

According to the embryologist, they were hoping each embryo would have 6 cells around them...but, being overachievers like their mamma, each embryo had 8 cells!

So we're freezing all of them, and once the hysterectomy and cancer nonsense is over, IT Geek and I will begin talking about our surrogate options.
