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!

Game night and a cold...

I have been on a bit of a blog break and this will be a very short post because I have a terrible cold that is quickly turning into a sinus infection! BUT... that didn't stop me from having GAME NIGHT!!!! :-)

Chris and I hosted game night this weekend and had such a wonderful time! :-) It was, of course, the girls...

... versus the guys....

(Love Patrick's sad face going on!) :-)

There was, of course, dispute over who won over all, but we all agreed on one thing - IT WAS FUN! We laughed so hard, so much! We played our favorites... Catch Phrase, Mad Gab, and Squabble! It was a wonderful night!

Saturday gave way to another relaxing Sunday at home! I wasn't feeling to perky with my cold after a late game night, so I slept in! Chris played golf with Patrick and then we got together around lunch for the rest of a relaxing afternoon snoozing and watching football! :-)

I hope your weekend was great! Please say a little prayer that I get well soon! I have been fighting this since last Tuesday!!!
