LAKE WYLIE, NC (WBTV) -

You guys remember Miss Sassypants, the sweet Ellie Sisk? She’s a Lake Wylie girl who we featured the night before she was having elaborate surgery to get rid of her seizures.

“She is doing AMAZING,” mom Christine wrote Saturday morning. “It has been three months since surgery and Ellie remains SEIZURE-FREE!”

The surgery was a complete success, according to Christine. Ellie graduated from preschool in May and had her dance recital – this photo – last week. Ellie is back to swimming, riding her bike and just being a normal kid.

Ellie also turned five-years-old since we last heard from her.

Happy belated birthday, Ellie.

You have much to celebrate.
