Sounds like you had a really happy ending and that's WONDERFUL!
And it also sounds like the costs were reasonable given some insurance coverage. (Isn't it funny how this journey changes our perceptions in so many ways that we think of $13k as reasonable! LOL!!!)
I do have a question...is the 80% rate you quote a 2009 stat? SART's site has through 2008 and it shows that in 2008 the "Percentage of transfers resulting in live births" was 73% and there were 122 transfer. Still a fantastic rate but curious about the 80%.
