I spent most of the day today literally worried sick. Just a refresher: Chris had a TESE done on Tuesday. Wednesday we learned only 5 of his sperm were moving. We had not received an update on the sperm since then, and it’s not for lack of effort. We’ve been calling the urologist’s office multiple times daily.
Finally, Chris got a hold of someone today only to discover the urologist is out and unreachable for the rest of the day. What the heck!? My retrieval is TOMORROW and they don’t think I want to know the status of our swimmers? Sometimes I feel like these doctors have no idea how invested we are in this process or just how stressful this is.
So, my hubby, being the rad guy that he is, did not give up. He called the lab directly and asked to speak with the embryologist. He asked them to check on his sperm, and report back to him as soon as possible. The embryologist was super helpful and called back within an hour.
He learned we have six moving sperm. So we’re up one more. Tomorrow is supposed to be the day of peak motility for the little guys. If you wouldn’t mind thinking happy thoughts for our swimmers we would really appreciate it.
Has anyone heard of success with such a low count? We are still holding on to hope. Come on little guys–just keep swimming!
