Welcome to Tyler and Parker Thompson's Blog

Tyler and Parker Thompson arrived on June 23, 2008 at only 26 weeks and 4 days old, weighing 1 pound 6 ounces (Parker) and 1 pound 10 ounces (Tyler). Parker spent 129 days (home 10/30/08) in the NICU, while brother Tyler spent 143 (home 11/13/08). We are thrilled to have our family complete with both boys home!

This blog was created by John (the daddy) to inform family and friends (and now new acquaintances) of the twins progression. Below is the blog archive dating back to the week Heather (the mommy) was admitted to the hospital. We try to post weekly updates, but on occasion the week gets the best of us.

Birthday Limbo

July 21 11:30 pm

Not much to report today. Tyler continues to desat pretty dramatically. They are finding a lot more congestion in his chest leading to a lot more secretions. This is probably causing the the severe desats. The plan is to let him ride it out for now. Parker is through his first day of steroids. We found out today we really won't be able to tell if they are working until tomorrow. He seems okay tonight....we'll know more tomorrow. Thought you may like to see a few more pics. Yesterday they swaddled Parker up like a little burrito which he seemed to like. You can't see much of him, but his cute little face. Also a pic of me cupping Tyler.
