    The Twins (and I don't mean the ones from Minnesota)

    Hey all. Well I have had a pretty amazing week so for. I went with the wife on Tuesday for an ultrasound (she was 34 weeks 3 days) and it showed that they were discordant (very different in size). So they proceeded with a biophysical profile and Twin B only scored a 4 out of 8 (that's bad I guess). So the doctor said "Let's send you down and monitor you (the wife) for a while but it may be the day to have your babies" (not a direct qoute).

    So the wife is on the monitor for a while and a nurse comes in and says "so were gonna get you in for a c-section about 3:00 omg

    So anyway by 3:51 Matthew Thomas was born-5 lb 5.2oz 18 inches long
    by 3:52 Ryan David was born-4lb 12 oz 17 1/2 inches

    Wow. We went for an ultrasound at 8:45 AM and by 4:00 PM we are parents. How does that happen.

    Ryan is doing great.

    Matt is having some trouble. His lungs are rather immature so he is on a C-PAP machine and respiration is very rapid. I have not even been able to hold him yet.

    Please keep him in your prayers.

    I have to get back to work for now. I will update further when I can.

    Guess we have 2 new fans for the Purple and Gold

    Congratulations. I don't know where you are in Chicagoland. I have some good family friends that had very premature (much earlier than 34 weeks)twin boys that were in post natal intensive care for over a month at Children's Memorial in Arrlington Heights, and the boys are perfectly healthy three year olds now. There are some very good infant care doctors in the Chicago area. Your boy should be in good hands, though I'll add my prayers to the mix. Every little bit helps.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, your wife and the two little Viking fans. Don't worry, Matt will make it...he is a tough little Viking fan in the making!!! Tell Patty to hang in there and that Cajun says "Hi!"
