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.

Ty and Duckies

Here are some pics of Tyler in his duckie outfit, looking cute as ever!

Today was good for both boys. They went down on their CPAP pressure today from 6 to 5 and neither of the boys showed negative signs of the change. When we arrived, Parky was at about 25% oxygen and Tyler was at 33%. Considering we breathe 21% oxygen, this is fabulous! If they continue to do well in the next couple of days, they will move to the cannula! Yeah!

More good news, their feedings were increased a couple of ml's, meaning the boys are digesting and growing at a good pace. Good day in the NICU!
