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!

Another Sandwich...

I am not a huge fan of egg salad, but I have now met one that I like... strike that... LOVE!

Boil three eggs and chop
Stir in some Gorgonzola cheese
Add just enough mayonnaise to moisten the salad
Salt and Pepper to taste

Crisp up some pancetta (or bacon will do)

Put the egg salad on a slice of bread
Top with crumbled pancetta or bacon
top with another piece of bread and you have...

ANOTHER perfect summer sandwich! :-) Thank you Giada and the Food Network!

That sounds really good! I'll have to try it. I'm thinking you might could toast it on the panini too, and it would kind of be like a breakfast sandwich, since it has the egg and bacon in it.
