Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

Welcome to Georgia's Journey

This is the first entry of what we hope will be an on-going record of the journey that lies ahead for Georgia and her family. We have set up this blog site for Kristen and Mike, to record day to day events in Georgia's life, share pictures and special moments as well as provide a central point for all of us to gather our thoughts and prayers.

Georgia was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Recently, Georgia was admitted to the PICU at the Health Sciences Centre (Winnipeg) with breathing problems. After 2 long weeks of waiting for test results, Georgia was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on Wednesday, April 1, 2009.

Today, April 3, 2009, Georgia has been moved home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends.

[Please read the next few posts denoted "Past email ..." to provide you with some history and pictures of Georgia while in hospital. The content for these posts are taken from emails sent out by Mike and Kristen over the past several weeks. When they have time, Mike and Kristen will post to the blog to provide updates above the "past email..." entries. ]

We encourage you all to visit here frequently and share this with other family and friends - near and far. Please leave your words of encouragement, prayers, and thoughts as "comments" throughout this blog.

Friends,
Glen & Jenn Douglas

  1. Thankyou Glenn and Jenn without your work on this blog we would not have been able to follow georgia`s journey, pray for her and her beloved family.

    This has made alot of people aware of SMA. I`d never heard of it before and will continue to forward this blog and petition every chance i get. Thank goodness for friends like you, Kristen and Mike will need all the support they can get in the days and months ahead. We will continue to read the blog to keep up to date on Kristen, Mike and girls and pray for them.
