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.

Surgery is Scheduled

Just a quickie...Parker's hernia surgery is scheduled for Wednesday - yippee! We're thrilled that it is finally "on the books" because the chances of Parker coming home 5-7 days after surgery is quite possible. Not the same story for Tyler, in fact the doctor told me yesterday that it looks like Tyler will probably not be discharged for at least a couple of weeks. Not ideal for us at all, but at least we'll have one of them home!

John is on a mission to clean the house before the boys come home so yesterday the carpets were cleaned. If you could see the house right now you'd laugh! All of the furniture is off the carpet and stuffed in bathrooms, the kitchen, tiled walkways and garage. It's like going through a maze to get through the house without stepping on carpet! Before we put the furniture back we'll bleach wipe down each piece as well. So these boys should be coming home to a fairly clean environment. We know we can't keep them from germs, but at least we can try to control what we can!

The excitement of the boys coming home is rising...woo hoo!

Can John come clean my house when he's done with yours? Enjoy the neatness while it lasts!

Hey there Heather and John. I'm so happy to see that the boys are doing well and look so adorable in their halloween costumes. It's great to see that they are going home soon. Heather, hopefully we can come over for a visit once things are settled.

Lots of love
