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!

A New Year...

A new year is coming... with many many changes!  I hope I will be able to blog more.  I have some major life-altering transitions coming my way this year!  Some that you know about - like my upcoming wedding!  Some that only a few of you know about, but that I will be sharing soon (I'm not prego, lol... just to clear up any confusion on that last statement)!  All the changes bring excitement... and a little stress too!  :-)  I can't wait to share it all with you and I ask for your prayers as these changes take place!  In the mean time, however, I would just like to wish each of you a Happy New Years Eve!  :-)  I hope you have F-U-N!  I know I will.  :-)
