My Donor had her Egg Retrieval Today - and she was Amazing

(yes I changed the title...the more I looked at it the more I felt it was not me...even though it was a complete joke...and I thought it felt a bit jinx-y, so I changed it...because now is not the time to get cocky.

My kickass donor had her ER today and produced an applause-worthy 37 follicles!! She did say from the beginning that she wanted her eggs to be the best! Well I think she might have just won the Gold Medal in the 2010 Donor Olympics.

We want to send S all the love in the please tell her how wonderful she is, and let's hope she gets better very soon. I know she will have to be careful over the next week and I plan to watch her like a hawk. I don't want her getting sick or ending up in the speedy recovery wishes welcome!
Tomorrow we'll see how many eggs were in those follicles, and how many fertilized. The staff at the clinic are talking to me in "batches". "The first batch will be frozen tomorrow, and the 2nd batch will be frozen on Day 3, and the 3rd batch will be frozen on Day 5..."
I feel like I've won the lottery, and if I never get pregnant, I will remember this as a triumphant day.

Well done S, you are a shining star and have completed all the tasks you had to do, and with such startlingly good results. Thank you, thank you, thank you from a family member who is wishing and hoping and praying that everything will be as good as this day today.

you freaked me out on the phone demanding to know "how many you think, eh, how many you think". One bad news after another, i was bracing myself for the worst.

Dear S:
I think you are golden. Thank you for everything you've done for my friend. You will be rewarded generously in life for being generous to others. We love you and wish you a speedy recovery.
