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.

Milestones


Well, yesterday marked ten months for Aria. When people ask about her I find myself constantly saying, "Aria is EVERYWHERE!" She now pulls herself up onto anything higher than her knees and cruises around the furniture. She also crawls up the stairs and would love to have the opportunity to go down them head first but I put my foot down!! : ) She absolutely loves the vacuum. In fact, I'd venture to say that the vacuum may be her best friend. She giggles and gets excited the minute that she sees it and laughs out loud if the girls play with her and the toy one.
Today is my dad's 65th birthday. We celebrated with balloons, steak and lobster and of course, a gift certificate to Golf Town! My dad seems a bit sheepish about celebrating. Two years ago there wasn't alot to be happy about. The day was overshadowed by Georgie's illness and hospitalization. We were still waiting on results but all knew that there was something seriously wrong. 65 is a huge milestone however and Georgie would love to know that we were all together today.





Happy Birthday Dad! Happy Birthday Grumpa! We love you and want to celebrate many, many more birthdays together.
Love to you all,
Kristen
