Ella is doing better then I could have imagined. She is having no issues at all. We are loving being post Fontan! Ella's energy is amazing. We knew that she was supposed to feel better post Fontan but we also knew that with her mystery problems she may have been much worse post Fontan. My girl who used to just walk across a room pick up a toy and walk back and desat is now able to walk until I wear out bending over to pick things up constantly. The other day I took her for a nice long walk outside and she never once got tired or turned blue. When I got her home I checked her oxygen level just to see what it was after so much activity. She was at 85! The other day I checked her at complete rest and she hit 96!!!!!!!! By far the highest I've ever seen her oxygen level!
Now on to the fun party pics!

Ella's cake was donated through the Icing Smiles Organization! This cake was done by https://www.facebook.com/SugarBakersOK she did such a great job! We are so thankful for her kindness to our family!
It was so much fun to watch Ella really interact a play with other kids!
We had some special heart friends that we were so happy to see!
Ella got to hold a baby for the first time!
We took the opportunity to take a pic of all the grand kids and their favorite Nana!
Happy 3rd Birthday Sunshine, you really do make everyday SO much brighter!
Thank you all for continuing to pray for Ella's heart to stay strong, for her immune system to be strong, for her other organs to hold up despite the hard blood flow, for good results at her upcoming appt. and for wisdom for Jon and I as we make decisions for her now and in the future!
