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.

Vegas, Here We Come!

Yesterday we celebrated Abby's 5th birthday at Tinkertown followed by a great dinner with our friends Candace and Paul. That marks the end of birthday season around here, at least for the kids. We're having a big bash on the 25th for my mom. Any family that hasn't received an email is invited. I don't have everyone's correct emails.

Today we spent the day as a family packing, painting toe nails and going for ice cream. Calla and Maya really wanted to paint daddy's toe nails but he didn't go for it. Calla asked him if he would change his mind if she found him some brown or black polish. He agreed but that's because he knows that we don't have any. : ) Calla and Maya now have pink and purple toe nails. They are very excited.

Mike and I are leaving in a few hours!! Before going however I just wanted to notify everybody that my friend Kim ended up collecting $4000 on behalf of Georgia. This money does not include all that was donated in her name to the Children's Hospital after she died. $3000 has been donated to FSMAC and $1000 has been donated to the Children's Hospital Pediatric Palliative Care Unit. Thank you to everyone!!

Time to finish packing,

Love to you all,

  1. I hope you guys are having a great time and enjoying some nice alone time together and hopefully some nice weather, too (something you would definitely not be getting here with our highs of 16, wind and rain).
