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.

Free Again!

So, we didn't have our "pow wow" with the docs today, but it is scheduled for tomorrow. Hopefully we have more information regarding a "plan" for the boys.
Tyler was again CPAP-free today! He has been sooo irritated with the CPAP he just hasn't gotten good sleep and fights the device. He was taken off today and put on high flow cannula to see if his agitation would subside. Guess what? It did...here's Tyler sound asleep and loving his CPAP-free face!
When I came in today Tyler was sleeping sideways in his crib. Nurse Cathy didn't want to disturb him because he was getting such good sleep. What a cutie!

As you can see, Tyler has no intentions of going back on CPAP...

...and to make sure he is holding onto the high flow cannula tubing.

"They can't make me go back!"

"Yes daddy, I will do my best to stay on the high flow cannula and not go back to the CPAP. I promise daddy!"
