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!

Menu Monday... a little late

$0.99 Taco Night at our favorite Mexican restaurant!  Chris and I both ate and were stuffed for a total, including tax, of $12 bucks !  :-)  (4 Tacos, 1 order of cheese dip, and an adult beverage for my Mr. and we were good to go!)  The most exciting part... I am slowly learning that we CAN eat out occasionally and stay on our budget!  Just have to do a little research and plan ahead!  :-)

Grilled pork chops with green beans and boiled potatoes

Probably another chicken casserole (his favorite!) because I won't be home... I'll be out with the girls watching The Help!  YAY!  I'll put half in the freezer for a quick dinner another night down the road and eat the leftovers for lunch Thursday!  :-)

Breakfast for Dinner

Eat Out - Toots!
$3.99 adult dinner deal and Lily eats FREE!  :-)

Chicken Roll Ups (another Favorite) with Green Beans

Leftovers/hodge-podge lunch and
Chicken Fried Rice with Stir Fry Veggies for dinner!

I love reading your menu plans. You inspire me!

Meagan said...

LOL... Mom commented as me! :-) I don't inspire myself.

$0.99 tacos!?! I need to go there! Sounds awesome! And what is this chicken fried rice recipe? You know I'll be asking for your recipes every Menu Monday : )

lol at Mom commenting as you. And what's wrong with inspiring yourself??? Oh for a .99 cent taco place around here! I think I have to drive about 2 hours for tacos at the regular price! Sounds like a great week of great eats!
