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!

Tybee Trip - Day 2 - Pictures!

Sunday we awoke to an overcast day that was slightly cool. Too cool to spend lots of time on the beach anyway. The boys got up early and went to play golf while the girls and Beckett tried to sleep in and have a low-key morning! After getting ready for the day we headed to the north beach where Patrick and Amanda were married. We thought it was the perfect place for some pictures! Sooo...

No reading today! Just lots and lots and lots of pictures! :-)

It was so hard to narrow it down to just these few! You can't imagine how many I took. Amanda and I were both very pleased with how they turned out! Lily and Beckett were both so sweet and so cooperative! It was a great way to spend the morning!

what a neat place for pictures. The drift wood is especially nice. But I have to say my favorite is of Lily holding up her dress as she steps into the surf.
That Beckett....he's a cuty! And he really knows how to work the camera. They should look into a baby modeling career for him!

Beautiful pictures! And I'm pretty sure Becketts parents are SUPER grateful for them right about now.
