A blog about family life and remembering our sweet Georgia, who died of SMA.
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.

Georgia had another good night and woke up this morning a little bit irritated. Maybe that had to do with the very full diaper she way laying in, poor thing! We took the mask off to clean her face and all of a sudden she smiled and then.... she laughed and she laughed and she laughed! Daddy has never been funnier. We read her stories and played with her for about 45 minutes and then decided to put the mask back on because she seemed to be getting tired. She is now watching her mobile drifting in and out of sleep. 45 minutes of bliss, I'll take it!
