The surgery is complete, and Ella is on her way to recovery! They got to see her for just a moment and she looked very peaceful. Jon & Amy will be able to sit with her as soon as they get her all set up in a room. They talked with the surgeon, Dr. Nugent, who is the same surgeon that did Ella's very first cath surgery the day she was born. Today, he fixed the calateral and said everything else looks amazing! He said she is a superstar! He can't believe her lungs are in such good shape. He said they are perfect now, God is amazing! He described her pulmonary arteries and arch as gorgeous and also said he wouldn't see us again for a couple of years! :) Another thing, the very first surgery they did on Ella where they had to stop in the middle because her lungs were too damaged so they put the bands on and tried again in a week - they are doing that now on every intact or restricted atrial septum because it worked so well! God is SO GOOD! Please continue to pray for a good, smooth recovery, especially since Ella has to lay flat & still for the next 4 hours.
Thank you everyone!
