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!

Friday Photos...

Girl's just want to have fun...
I could listen to and watch Lily play all day!
Here she is glamorous in my sunglasses, play jewelry, PJs, and she uses an Xbox remote as a steering wheel while she takes all her "kids" to school in the morning.

Daddy makes the best playmate...

 ...especially for dress up!  My Mr. sporting our favorite hair bow.

 Go Get 'em Coach...
My very sexy Mr. (the one on the right) at the first official game of the season.  We won (of course) and I was proud. 

And then there is Pinterest. 
Have I mentioned that I am addicted???
Check out these fun ideas for storage and organization...

Closet door / book shelf...
brilliant, really. 

 ...and this use of space?  Usually wasted space in most houses... I LOVE this idea!

 This was just too cute and would make a GREAT gift!!  Haha!

And last, but not least, since I can't keep wine in the wine rack anyway (the bottles just feel neglected there, so we drink them, lol), I finally have a good use for it!  Wine Rack + Cups = art supplies storage solution!  LOVE IT!  :-)

Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Photos!  :-)

Oh My Gosh! I LOVE the bookshelf door! And I see its to a waterheater closet, which really is wasted space, so you don't loose good closet space by making hte door so deep! Excellent idea! Also love the Lily driving picture and the hairbow on Chris! Hey, I know your not drinking wine now, but when you resume, will you save your bottle for me? And we'll look into what it might cost to mail them to me, or maybe I'll just pick them up when we pass through.
