It was the lesser of the evils.  She has a calateral.  Basically her heart is pumping about 25% of her blood around her lungs instead of to her lungs. They are going to coil it and expect this will help them hold off on the Fontan for a couple of years. They like to wait as long as they can for the Fontan. They also found a few AVM's but will leave them in for now.  All in all it's going well!  She will have to stay the night because they are doing some repair.  Please continue to pray.  The doctor is doing the repair right now. The recovery could be challenging as Ella has to lay flat for four hours.

Thank you all for continuing to pray!
