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.

We're back! In fact, we climbed into bed at 5:24 am yesterday and Calla was standing there saying good morning at 6:37. Needless to say we were a bit tired all day. Vegas was lots of fun! Our first full day there we left the hotel room for breakfast and didn't return for 15 hours! It was a little bit crazy and we decided that we had to take time to relax too. It's just that there is so much to do. While there we visited Paris, New York, and Venice. We went shopping and swimming. We watched sirens fight off pirates, water dance and a volcano erupt. We went to three shows including the famous "O" by Cirque de Soleil. We also went to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum where I putted alongside Tiger Woods and Mike shot hoops next to Shaq. There was even a spot where one could put on a dress and marry George Clooney.

The weather in Vegas was quite warm. The average daytime high was 108-111 degrees faranheit - that's 42-44 degrees celcius! It didn't slow Mike and I down much. We walked through the hotels and took the bus when it just got to be too much. We actually both like the heat so it really wasn't that bad. When we got home yesterday morning it was only 11 degrees and I can tell you that it felt really cold. It's much warmer today however. Mike returns to work on Monday and then we'll begin planning our little jaunt out to Calgary in August.

I will post pictures by tomorrow for sure.

Love to you all,



  1. So happy to know you both enjoyed your trip.
    Vegas is lots of fun!
    Love Carol
