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 Post Surgery

Here's Tyler in the recovery room. He wasn't satting as well as he should so he got a little oxygen while recovering.

Taking a ride to our "home away from home".

Tyler was VERY flush for a while after surgery. We think it was the medicine given to reverse the affects of the anesthesia.

Tyler: "Daddy, what is this big white thing on my arm?"
That would be the wrapping used to prevent the boys from messing with their IVs. They later got "no no"s, little chin-guard-looking devices that were decorated with cowboys and indians that covered the entire arm - very cute.
