Tyson Hugh Hooper

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!

Miracle's happen...

Thank you for praying! I just got a phone call... Mr. Hooper is scheduled for brain surgery tomorrow and he doesn't need it! It's simply a bruise from his fall! How WILD is that! There sure is power in prayer and I am giving God all the glory. According to the doctor he's in good health and he can return home and come back for his regularly scheduled check up in a few weeks! :-) Happy Day!


Some of you might remember this post back on April 21... and this one as well about Mr. Harris Hooper who was suddenly diagnosed with melanoma exhibited in a brain tumor. After surgery and treatment he was practically declared a medical miracle and cancer free.

I am sad to say that after falling on the way to vacation, Mr. Hooper had an MRI and another mass was discovered... this time embedded in his frontal lobe.

I don't know lots of details, but I do know this. I believe with all of my heart that his fall was a blessing in disguise, as I believe it is what called early attention to this new concern.

Mr. Hooper will undergo surgery sometime this week. I ask for your prayers... lots and lots of prayers... for Mr. Hooper and for his family.

Thank you all so much.
