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!

I miss you...

I like you for always,
I love you forever,
as long as I'm living,
my blog you'll be.

My computer checks back in to geek squad for the THIRD time tomorrow.

I am hopelessly behind, and still mourning the loss of all my photos, music, lessons, powerpoints, and files.

But, I vow to be back. As soon as this computer mess is all worked out.  Please don't forget about me!

My computer is back...

...and I lost EVERYTHING.

Every Photo.

Every File.

Every Everything.

I guess I have learned my lesson.  I'll be backing up from now on.

I haven't left you...

...I am just experiencing technical difficulties!

My lap top is now with the good people of Geek Squad (again).  Hopefully it will be covered by the plan that expires on October 31 and I won't lose everything.

I only have the desktop dinosaur that loads as slow as molasses in December, so don't expect much blogging until I get the lap top situation figured out!  Don't give up on me though!

Miss you all!
