This book is dedicated to my wife, Marika, who sticks by me no matter how stupid I am, my son, Steven, and to the hundreds of anesthesiologists, obstetricians, nurses, and scrub techs who have helped make our team better. And to Yunping Li for pushing us to publish!
This book is dedicated to the memory of my mother Zhanmei Zhang and to my father Yifei Li for their encouragement; to my husband, Weixing, who supports me daily; to my son, Kevin, who has honored me by pursuing a career as a physician.
To all those who have taken the time to listen and provide me their wisdom throughout my career. And to my wife, Revital, for her support and ability to remind me that the imperfect can be amazing.
To my wife, Kristen and my amazing twin daughters, Sophie and Lucy.
