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!

Sandwich, baby!

Take some fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, and french bread. Brush the french bread with some good olive oil. Assemble...

Smush... in a Panini Press that is....
And the result is THE PERFECT summer sandwich.
And the baby part... (unrelated)

Megan and Jack came over tonight for dinner and a visit!
I made salad, garlic Parmesan bread, and Cajun chicken pasta.
We ate, we visited, and we cuddled on sweet baby Jack!

It was a perfect summer evening visiting with the dearest of friends and her new, more than preciously, bundle of pure joy.

That sandwich looks yummy! I've used cheddar and tomatow. I'll have to try it this way.
Got my playlist fixed. I thought I'd just saved that post to post today, but apparently not. That's why the playlist wasn't changed yet. Thanks for the heads up!
