Very sensitive question re remaining embryo

Can I ask for you would do? We have 1 embryo left from the cycle in which I conceived our 2nd child. (We used used same donor for both fresh cycles, so the embryo would result in a full sibling for both of my children.)

We are paying a sickening amount of money to store it with the clinic. Appalling, really, & my inertia has led to paying it year after year. We have paid for 3 years so far at more than $100 a month. I swore when I paid the last bill I would make a decision & yet here I am.

We are done. Or at least are done in the absence of some horrific tragedy. I had a hyst. so any future cycle would require a GC & we have no intention on having a 3rd via GC.

Do we donate? We only have 1 although it is a day 6 blast. And dh would struggle with this. Yet he remains blissfully unconcerned with the bills or the storage issue. He's aware we have 1 left & we pay for storage but otherwise, he is blissfully ignorant.

Long term storage?

It is agonizing, yet at more than $100 per month, I have got to make a decision. This one is tearing me up.
