Il elle envoie deux milliers de roses

Shouldn't 'elle' be used instead of 'lui' for 'He sends her' in the above example?

This relates to:
Expressing large numbers: thousands, millions and billions -

Bonjour Terry,

Elle is a subject pronoun, as in Elle est intelligente, or a stress pronoun, as in C'est pour elle.

In the sentence "He's sending her roses," her is an indirect object pronoun, and the third person singular indirect object pronoun - whether masculine or feminine - is lui. See our lesson: https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/my-languages/french/view/710
