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.

Daddy & Parky just sittin' around!

This weekend Parker progressed nicely on his feedings, taking a bottle at almost every feed! Way to go buddy! His breathing was progressing so well this weekend they took off his cannula today to see how he'd do. Unfortunately the "test" was done right before he ate and he became way too tuckered while eating so it was quickly put back on, but they are going to try again some time this week. Surgery did not happen on Friday but the docs tell us it should be this week. We'll know tomorrow whether it'll be Tuesday - we're hoping for Tuesday because it means Parker will come home sooner. Besides that, Parker has been a gassy boy whose reflux we think has returned. They are doing a reflux test with him tonight and if it has returned (or never went away) they will probably re-prescribe Zantac again. Overall, it was a good Parker day with one happy boy!

Daddy and Parky had a good day just sittin' around.

Who says babies don't smile...come on, does this look like gas? I think not!
