After three longs weeks of fighting so hard to stay with us, Avery passed on last night.
Tracey and I were with her and ensured that she was showered with warmth and love.
In the three weeks that our daughter was with us, she showed us that strength is measured in many ways. Avery, never weighing more than 1 lb 13 ozs, is the strongest person we had ever met.
Avery was my first child. And even given her very difficult situation, she brings me such joy and happiness. I believe she's impacted other people as well and this is something that will stay with all of us.
Tracey and I are doing fine. As you can imagine we're going to keep to ourselves a little over the next couple days. Feel free to be in touch via e-mail and I will continue to update the blog on how we're doing and on Colby's progress as often as possible.
Thank all of you for your love, support and compassion during Avery's journey.
Scott & Tracey
