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!

Sunday Stills...

There is a website my sister has followed/participated in for quite a while now.  She took a break from it, but I wanted to get involved, so now we are both going to do it each week.  It's called Sunday Stills.  Each Sunday the blog author offers up a little photography challenge!  Anyone who wants to can participate by posting a photo with their interpretation of the topic!  So, this is my first Sunday Stills post!  Enjoy!

This week's challenge was "Rule of Thirds"

Because every free moment of my week was consumed with moving into my new classroom I had to use some photos I took a few weeks back!  These are some of my favorite's of the Hutchings boys, Vance and Jack.  Megan and Web, I have to thank you both for having such adorable children!  I love these boys with all my heart!

Clearly I favor the right side! LOL!  :-)
