Hi everyone, sorry for the delay in this post. Ella actually came home on Tuesday afternoon, only 1 week after her surgery. The difference between her condition on Saturday compared to her condition on Tuesday was absolutely incredible. The cardiologists were so impressed by the progression of her breathing and overall recovery, in just a few short days, they decided to send us home. She is doing extremely well…smiling and eating, pooping and peeing….what more could we ask for? Honestly, when she’s wearing her onesie, you forget that she has just gone through open heart surgery…just days previous.
Here are a couple of recent pics, this first one I find ironic. We were sent up to the 7th floor of the IWK, which is the cardiac floor….here is the major donor for the floor:
(in case you missed the irony, Colonel Sanders is the founder of KFC, ie heart attack sandwich)
And lastly, here she is, the one we’ve all been praying for…I have to tell you, and I know I’m biased, but she is one special little girl! God is so good.
