Update: Madison Squires Infection Gone, Still In Coma

The tube that doctors had placed in Madison Squires' brain to drain the fluids associated with head injuries and brain swelling has been removed, friends of the family told KLTV 7 News today.

She is also said to be clear of the infection which had prevented doctors from operating on her leg, which was badly damaged in the ATV accident that almost killed nine year old Madison and left her in a coma.

The family requests that you continue to pray for her and the Squires family, who was uninsured at the time of the accident. Funds have been set up at both Southside Bank and American National Bank. Just tell them you're donating to the Madison Squires fund.
