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's Girls

These two cuties have their Daddy wrapped!

The little one loves to sleep with her daddy...
...even when she visits him at work!
Who ever dreamed that Daddy's desk would end up being a good napping spot!

But the BEST place for a nap is not on Daddy's desk...
...it's ON Daddy!

Whenever Ava Grace is really fussy and can't seem to get comfortable, Daddy snuggles her up and that does the trick!
(Notice the paci handle flipped up!  It's how she and her daddy roll! lol)

And as for the big one?
 There's never been a bigger Daddy's girl that this one!  She just can't get enough of her Daddy and he can't get enough of her!  I never get tired of playing with them both, or watching them play!  I've seen Chris play everything from dress up to American Girl doll school!  He's such a good Daddy!  And she's such a good girl!

Both girls have their Daddy completely wrapped!  It melts my heart!
