God is truly amazing!!!! The girls are doing so well, we can't ask for more. They are both off all oxygen right now, and breathing room air. They are also both having breast milk. Our little Beatrice by tonight will have 12cc every 3 hours and will be completely off all other feedings except breast milk. Olivia is now up to 3cc every 3 hours of breast milk. Little Olivia has moderate Pulmonary Stenosis so we have to continue to watch her heart. She will at some point have to have a procedure to correct that, but we really need to put the weight on first. We ask for your prayers for the girls as each day is a new and different day. So far we have not had any set backs but each day is different. God is truly amazing, and has done so much already for us. I was discharged yesterday but we have decided to stay here at the Ronald McDonald house. The house had a very nice Easter Dinner for everyone at 2pm today. We were unable to be with the children and our family, so God made a way for us to still have a nice dinner. I am so amazed at how God has continued to lay each step in front of us. He continues to move in so many ways for our family and these girls. Thank you all for your prayers and continued support.

Happy Easter, Cooper Family! It is wonderful to hear that the girls are on room air! It is a wonderful thing when they get to come off of the oxygen! God is so good! The Lord used the Ronald McDonald house to be a huge blessing to us during Wyatt's stay in the NICU, and I'm sure it will be a blessing for you as well! We're praying for you all! Thanks for keeping us updated! We're close by... if you need anything!

What wonderful news! We will continue to pray for that healing that we KNOW only GOD can give. We have seen and pray to see even more miracles through these two precious little ladies. We love you and your whole family.
