Tyson Hugh Hooper
Our son, Tyson Hugh Hooper, was born with coarctation of the aorta, hypoplastic arch, and a transitional avsd. His first open heart surgery reconstructed his aorta and was on day 9 of life. His second open heart repair was not anticipated to be needed until two or three years of age. Ty had other plans. We spent the vast majority of his first 3 months of life at Vanderbilt as he went into heart failure and was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension. As a result, the medical team concluded that he needed the repair much sooner than usually recommended, and at just shy of 3 months old Ty underwent his second life saving open heart surgery. God has already worked so many miracles in Ty's life and the life of our family and we know he is using our story. Because of this, we are grateful for Ty's special heart and feel beyond blessed that God chose us to travel this road. We ask for prayers as Ty continues to heal. We are praying for a full recovery and life without restrictions for Ty. We are praying for God to use our family and Ty for His glory.

Thank you to each and every person who supports us through prayer, giving, or just by loving on our family! We are humbled and blessed by all of the ways the Lord is providing for us and know that he is using Ty and his story to do great things!

A quick recipe...

Okay, so this recipe probably has little or no nutritional value, but it sure is tasty and it sure is EASY and FAST and something the WHOLE family will love which makes it a winner in my book!

A block of Velveeta melted with a can of Rotel (I use mild, you use whatever you like).... so far sounds like chip dip, right? Well... stir in some cooked, chunked chicken and some cooked angel hair pasta and you have a yummy, cheesy, chicken-y, dish that is stick-to-your-rib YUMO!

It doesn't get easier than that! And it was just the ticket when I was standing in my kitchen with aching feet thinking... what in the world am I going to eat for dinner tonight! Ding! 30 minutes and I am enjoying a great pasta dish and have some for lunch tomorrow too!

Mmmmmmmmmmmm - that really does sound delicious!! I'm not a fan of Velveeta, but add the rest in there and it makes it okay. :-)
