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!

House Warming...

*Update:  I have added the "follower" button under my pictures in the sidebar.  I have also changed my settings to you can link to me again!  (Except Lauren, Megan, and my sister! lol)  :-) 

Well here I am! If you are reading this, then you obviously found me at my new address and know I have moved! :-)  In lieu of a"housewarming" at my new address I am asking you to leave a comment or drop me an email (meagan.stiner@comcast.net) so I know I didn't lose you in transition.  :-)

Hi! I made it and I LOVE the new look! This is SO nice! Not that I didn't 'like the hot pink and zebra, but this is more me, if you know what I mean. So now that you learned to transfer all your stuff to a new site, you might have to teach me. I've hated my blog address ever since I did it. I'm not good at spur of the moment creativity like that, as you saw at the "paint pottery place."
