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.

Close the book on the Rotavirus chapter!

Tyler is feeling a bit under the weather being a couple days behind his brother with the Rotavirus.

Tyler: "Maybe if I smile and kick my feet, I'll feel better!"

Tyler: "Is it gone yet? I can't hold this fake smile forever!"

And so Parker closes the book on this chapter of "The Life and Times of Tyler and Parker"!

We're pretty teary here reading this account of the week. You both must be exhausted. Hope you all can get some sleep and peace now that you are home.

Oh goodness, my heart goes out to you and your precious boys! I can't imagine- you must be horrified! Did they get the Rotavirus vaccinations? Micro-preemies don't EVER catch the 'common' cold, our doctors drilled into our heads that at the first sign of anything we were to bring Ayla in. She hasn't been home long but I know these types of days are ahead. God bless you!
