I grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas. Corpus is a small city on the Gulf of Mexico and it’s known for approximately three things – the birth of Whataburger, the death of Selena Quintanilla, and the sandy, sargasso-laden beaches that edge the barrier islands. That close to the ocean, hurricanes and tropical storms are a part of life. I spent most of them jumping off the local pier to surf the accompanying storm swell; but every once in a while, a larger storm developed, so we loaded up the family photo albums and the cats and headed up to San Antonio, far enough inland to be out of immediate danger. Hurricanes and I have a 30-something year history. Brett, Ike, Rita. I take the mass hysteria with a generous grain of salt.

Well said. Thank you for your dedication and your perseverance. I can only imagine the relief of the O.R. anesthesia teams as you and your colleagues made their way in to help out and provide necessary medical care in the midst of this disaster. Kudos to you!
