UPDATE from Aug 27th, 2011
Update: Anson has an infection in the brain. They had to do an angiogram to help with red blood cell/oxygen perfusion to the brain. He is still in a medical/injury induced coma. It sounds like he has had to receive blood transfusion because it blood is becoming to thin. He still needs the prayers coming. Thanks.

Anson had the drainage tube removed from his brain today. He had to be put back on the ventilator because his breathing was too fast. Keep praying!
