I remember riding in a truck from Port-au-prince, Haiti, driving over terrible roads, in the dark with all our surgical supplies loaded in the back getting wet in the rain. I remember thinking 'there is no way this is ever going to work'. The next day I found myself in the operating room, providing anesthesia, and somehow it all worked!
