The fertilization call

I spent some time trying to research the odds of fertilization with ICSI. It seems about 70% is a common figure given, so if I had 10 eggs then around 7 of those could be expected to fertilize. But with just 1 egg, the reality is that it is either 0% or 100%, and it is pretty darn scary waiting for that phone call knowing that the cycle can end right here.

Of course, the call came later in the morning than I anticipated, but when it finally came we were so relieved with the good news. The egg had fertilized!

So I can hold off buying a return ticket back home for now, I'll be staying in NJ a little longer.
