This was a banner week for fun stuff arriving in the mail. In addition to my diploma, another piece of paper arrived this week:
Time to make the annual decision about what we do with our 5 frozen embryos! It turns out that storing embryos is sort of like a magazine subscription or Costco membership: you have to renew annually. We were offered a few choices: store them for another year, donate them or destroy them.
Unlike renewing a magazine subscription or membership, however, our decision required a witness. Guess decisions involving human tissue require a little more effort. If it were an online form, I bet we would see screens like “Are you sure?” Yes. “Are you really, really sure?” Yes. “Are you absolutely, positively sure?” followed with “This action cannot be undone.”
We chose to store them for another year (it wasn’t ever up for debate).
Stay cool, totsicles. Hopefully we can use you eventually.
