Shipping Sperm

It looks like we will have to ship Colin's sperm, because he is to busy at work to make the trip to India. I thought I would be able to carry the tank on the plane, but the tank weighs 28 pounds, and I cannot get a gaurantee from customs in India that I will not be hassled. With this said, more than likely I will be on a plane for India in March, for its arrival. The cost is actually not that bad. The cost of the tank is $900 but it is refundable if the tank is sent back. The cost for fed-x is $650 and that is the round trip cost. I called the cryobank in our area and everything can be done in record time, as long as you do not say that you are shipping the sperm for a donor. Should you mention anything about a donor, than your sperm will have to go through the whole process of screening, which could take months before they would ship for you.

I'm starting to get nervous once again, and I didn't think that would happen. More than likely we will use the same donor as Mark, and we are using the same surrogate and we will see what happens. If not we have a back-up plan. I want to be there for our surrogate and the implant, because I think she would like it if I made the trip. Over the next week, all of the decisions will be made and I will tie up all of the lose ends.
