Brecken has done very well since we brought him here to Denver. Over the last two days They were able to take him off the ventilator and put an oxygen nose peice on him. This doesn't make him breath but it provides constant pressure to help him expand his lungs. We also found out that he had a small hole in his heart(this is normal for most baby's especially those that are premature) that has closed up over the last 2 days. He has made some great improvments and is now able to cry, suck on a pacifier, and he has been moved into an isolete(incubator).
Here are a few picture and videos from the last few days.

Brecken holding my finger again. This is one of the ways that we have found that we can touch him without hime getting upset.
When brecken starts to get upset it helps to make him feel more confined by putting your hand over his arms.
