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!

Daddy Daughter Daisy Scout Dance...

This was Chris and Lily's second year going to the Daddy Daughter Dance!  I think it is so precious and I love getting Lily all dressed up to go out with her Daddy!

(I have a thing for little feet and little shoes!) 

 This year's theme was royalty!  So of course Lily was prepared!

Lily calls this dance the "Daddy's watch your daughters run around and play Dance!"  She thinks that is SO funny!  They dance a little, but there is a lot of playing too!  This year, there weren't as many little girls there.  They didn't stay too long, just and hour and half or so.

I just wanted to document the sweet moment that my handsome prince took his little princess out for the night!  :-)  So sweet.

that is so sweet! And they make such a royally delightful looking duo! I think Lily's name for the event is probably much more acurate, and just too cute that she made that observation!
