The world has lost a special person.
Avery Lynn Canahuati died yesterday afternoon. She was almost 7 months old.
Her father wrote a beautiful tribute to his daughter on the blog Avery's Bucket List.
Here's what he said:
"Hello everyone this is Avery's father. Avery passed away yesterday sometime around 3pm due to pulmonary complications related to SMA. In short, one of her lungs collapsed and she went into cardiac arrest. I immediately performed CPR on her and was able to bring her back to life, but only for a brief period of time before she passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital. Avery's passing this quickly came as a complete shock to all of us, as she had just been given a thumbs up at her last doctors appointment only three days ago. While we were aware of the severity of her diagnosis, we never lost hope for Avery and even in her passing, we still have hope for our daughter."
If you haven't read the blog, yet - you definitely should.
It's amazing and touching and wonderful.
We'll truly miss you.
