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.

Rising River

To all of our Winnipeg friends still wanting to help I have a suggestion. Dr. Mike, Georgia's physician has dedicated his life to helping families bring their loved ones home. If it were not for this amazing man Georgia would probably still be in hospital and we would still be feeling hopeless. There are not a lot of pediatric palliative care physicians, never mind those that believe that home is best. Tonight, Dr. Mike's home is in danger as the river climbs to dangerous levels. The dyke along Kingston crescent needs to raised by at least a foot and it sounds like they are going to start sandbagging around 9:00 AM tomorrow (Friday). If you are feeling the urge to do something please go help Dr. Mike and all of the volunteers tomorrow morning. Trust me, he deserves this.

Georgia continues to have a good day. She hung out in her swing again and now she is playing with her sister in the living room and listening to fun music like "Sandwiches" by Fred Penner. That song can always make me smile. : )
