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.

A picture tells a thousand words

August 16 11:45 pm

Let's hope a picture is worth a thousand words since this blog will be very short. Not much change today at all with either boy. Mostly a day of just battling. Parker is battling the breathing tube.....he continues to pull on it and be completely annoyed by its presence while Tyler constantly pulls his CPAP out of his nose causing him to desat. A lot more work for the nurse to monitor Tyler on CPAP as he hates everything about it and simply can't stop battling against it. No major problems today, so we are counting that as a blessing. Going to bed now:):) Enjoy the pics
