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.

Tyler Cutie

"Life is so peaceful right now, no CPAP on my face, no one is messing with me...life is good."

"Oh no...not the scale again!
They do this every night!"

Around 5lbs. 14 oz. of Tyler! Looks like he is joining brother in the surgery club - he may have a hydrocele (swelling of and fluid in the testicles) which will need to be fixed before he goes home. Everything else is well with our little guy. He was a little irritable tonight because of gas, but overall he was doing well with oxygen around 35 to 39%. The Pulmonologist came by and said he might take both boys off CPAP and on to high flow cannula! Wow...that'd be AMAZING!
