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.

100 Days in the NICU

YES, TODAY MARKED 100 DAYS IN THE NICU! This means 100 trips to the hospital, 100 times finding a parking place, 100 hand scrubs and sanitizing gel "sessions", and 100 walks through the lobby, down the hallway and into a room that has become our "home away from home". Most importantly it represents 100 days of watching tiny 26 week, 1lb 6 & 10 oz "bird-like" bodies form into amazing 7lb cherubs. The amount of time passed is hardly comprehensible and at times it seems as though the boys were just admitted. I'm not really sure how we've survived 100 days - one day at a time, patience, faith, hope, and undying love and support from family, friends and associates. THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING WITH US DURING THE FIRST 100 DAYS OF OUR JOURNEY. We hope you are with us for the next 100 as well!
