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.

Blogus Disappearus

Mommy blog - take two! There is nothing more frustrating than writing a blog and having it DISAPPEAR! I've just lost an hour of my life - can't get THAT one back! Grrrr... Now I only have the energy for a summary of stats, sorry.
Parker had a good day: 33% oxygen, feeds up to 40 cc's, chest xray showing improved lung capacity, and snuggles up to 2 hours with mommy. Rock star moves today! Tyler had a stalled day with his oxygen at around 39-45%, but he was sort of lethargic and wasn't handling our snuggles very well. I put him back after only 30 minutes and he just slept the rest of my stay. His blood work and chest xray showed nothing alarming, so I'll assume he was having a "leave me alone to grow" day.
Maybe I'll have the energy to reinact the blog tomorrow! ;o)
