Default My embryologist found more sperm!

So, since March DP and I have been furious over the fact that my clinic thawed out 4 vials of sperm on my first IVF cycle. We just couldn't understand why they would thaw all 4 vials instead of thawing them 1 by 1 until they had enough sperm. This meant we had ZERO vials left after that cycle and re-ordered another 4 for this cycle (IVF#2). Yesterday when we went to my egg retrieval, the embryologist popped in to wish me good luck and said that we had 6 vials in storage. DP and I were like "
 
and
 
HUH?" Turns out that during IVF#1 they only thawed 2 vials, so we have 2 left from that cycle. We are still scratching our head over why they would tell us they used all 4! Then, they also told us yesterday that they only had to thaw out 1 vial of sperm for this cycle!!! So, that leaves us with 5 vials in storage!!! I am so excited about that. I knew my donor would perform and that we would probably only need 1 vial!!! It's good to know that I can do 5 more IVF's with this donor.
 
DP and I are stoked!!!!! I have been looking at the Xytex website and haven't seen him on there since March. I'm wondering if because he is Canadian that he is no longer participating in the program. I keep meaning to call Xytex and forgot again today. My RE was funny yesterday. I told her about the new Canadian law that now says they can't pay their donors and she said, "Well, maybe he will still go because he likes the movies. Or maybe he wants to find out how the movie ended!" God, DP and I almost fell on the floor in laughter.......
