Ovarian transplants: another victory for cyberpunk tech. :)

Played hooky from Nano last night, which felt good. Part of this whole thing is keeping nano from taking over your life completely. Now, of course, I'm once again two days behind schedule, but the ball is rolling well.

In other news, news related to the title, for example, it appears that ovarian transplants can result in fertility. There's now discussion of preserving an ovary for women who want children later in life, or who are about to undergo cancer treatment. I thought this was likely in some of the discussion in /Irreconcilable Differences/, although the discussion comes from Hari Kari, who is a bit of a nut. Apparently she is correct that ovaries can be transplanted, though, and since she's a tech ninja, it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that she knows her transplant/implant technology.
