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... just a little late!

We are finally settling into our old new routine!
Today Ava Grace and I got up, showered, ready, and out the door before 8:00!  We ran errands, stopped at Starbucks for a bottle for AG and a coffee for me and then finished out our errands and were back home in time for lunch!  I have paid bills, meal planned, and I am about to clean some!  I love days like this when everything just seems to click!  Part of our old routine we are finally bringing back is Menu Monday!  So here it is... on Tuesday, lol!

You don't know how happy my family is that you are menu posting again...all my great ideas come from you and they are tired of Ravioli! :)

it's cold and damp in Alabama today. If the weather is the same there, it's perfect for chili! Wish I was there to enjoy it with you!
