    After driving 4 hrscycles to the hospital and then told his ANC was too low my wife "lostscrew it" and I was frustrated. We had a lot juggling to do with getting care for our daughter, travel plans, etc and thought our son's surgery was going to happen. Fortunately everyone understood and pitched in to help us know We are so thank ful for our friends living so far from our immediate family.
