The rescue ICSI worked and I have one embie. And they're giving me a 5dt on Monday, which I'm relieved about. I know there's a decent chance the embie will arrest by then but at least I won't be putting back something that has no chance and getting my hopes up if there is no hope. So we will see. Please send growing vibes to my one little embie.
