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...

It has taken me a week to get to last weekends pictures!

Here was last weekend in a nut shell...

 Shopping in Franklin, TN with lunch at our FAVORITE lunch spot...
The best pimento cheese on the planet with tomato basil bisque, fruit tea, and home made nutmeg cheese cake.  Really. 

Shopping at an ADORABLE fabric store I knew nothing about in Smyrna with Anne and Mom.  Quite possibly the birth of a new hobby for me and wonderful source of joy for the seamstress deep inside my Mama! 

 Of course the biggest event of the weekend was finding out that Baby Girl (as we now call her) was indeed a baby girl!!  ;-)  This was shortly after we found out!

And some golfing with my sweet husband.  I love being on the golf course at twilight!  :-)

I would love to have lunch at the Mercantile! Almost as much as I would love to have lunch at Couch's BBQ! Alas, Subway will have to suffice. Looks like it was a good weekend!
