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.
