Chris is preparing for a trip to Mexico in May and I'm excited to work again in an upcoming clinic in Thermal, California.
Los Médicos Voladores (LMV; the flying doctors) is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that helps improve the health and well-being of the peoples of Mexico and Central America through the provision of no-cost, high-quality healthcare and health education clinics in rural villages in northern Mexico (northern Sonora and Baja), El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras; and among migrant labor populations in the Coachella Valley of the southwestern United States (southern California). Since 1975 LMV has offered more than 230 short-term medical, dental, optometry, and other healthcare clinics, treating over 7,000 patients per year.

And, just in case you thought I was all selfless and stuff, I have to confess I've just returned from a fun filled family vacation to of all places... Las Vegas! Chris and I met our oldest son and his family in the desert and had a fabulous time hanging out with the kids by the pool and soaking up the sights. I didn't pull a single lever in the four days I was there! That must be some kind of record. I did however eat a lot of fabulous food and I might have had a cocktail once the kids were in bed. I took a lot of pictures of quilty inspiration which I'll be sharing because Vegas is all about opulence and I saw quilt ideas everywhere.
Until next time,
