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.

Lights Out!

Last night, before we were going to post our blog entry, the electricity went out. John and I had a great time finding flashlights and sitting in the dark chatting. The good thing about not having electricity? I went to bed at a reasonable hour and actually got some sleep!

Quick: Yesterday was a good day for mommy who held both boys for a long time. Parker is doing so well on his oxygen requirements and even Tyler has entered the mid 30's! The nutritionist and Pulmonologist came by to assess the boys and will give their recommendations to our doctor so we expect to hear something today when we go in. Hopefully the boys are closer and closer to getting off that pesky CPAP! Not a lot of new to report, but maybe we'll have some new info and pics tonight!
