KD has come and gone. The bit with the cryobank was a breeze and our overall timing appeared to be decent, thanks to the shipper since I think our IUI was borderline, if not a hair too late. So, now we just sit back and wait for the next 2 weeks to see if we were successful!
I'm really, really glad we decided to move to IUI. The experience was fantastic - more on that later. The cryobank services ended up costing less than we expected, so that was nice, especially after the ridiculously outrageous cost of the plane ticket we bought for KD. (We figured out the problem with the airfares, BTW - there was a huge sports match being played in our city against, of course, the team from KD's city. KD's flights were loaded up with rapid fans, hence his ticket costing 250% of it's normal value.)
Anyway, things are good. I'm feeling really optimistic - for better or for worse - and I promise to get on here sometime tomorrow to fill in the rest of the details. :-)
