"The Living Room" (aka ... about us)
Tommy's Preemie Web chronicles our son Thomas'
premature birth in 1994. The story starts on the
Thomas Today page which links into a journal about
our time in the NICU. The site additionally has pictures, links, and
other information tied to preemies.
This site was originally known as "Tommy's CyberNursery" back in
1995 when everything was cyber-something.
It was the first preemie site listed in the Yahoo! directory (popular in the
pre-search engine days). It gained quite a bit of notoriety and attention in its
The site name evolved to become "Tommy's
CyberNursery Preemie Web" to better establish it as a preemie resource in
search and links. We eventually dropped CyberNursery all together, as
over time he was far to old to have anything called a "nursery."
This page is known as the Living Room,
which traces back to the original layout concept which identified every page
as a room. This page most recently housed our guestbook, which is what
people used for social interaction before we had
Facebook fan pages.
We evolved this
page to an "about us" with
ties to our past, including a bit of our history, some awards we've won over
the years, and references to the time when we were known as Tommy's CyberNursery.
