From Sun Sentinel:
An Eagles’ teammate, who did not wish to be named, told the Sun Sentinel earlier on Friday that Wilford was stable after having her third surgery earlier in the day. The basketball team plans to visit her on Saturday.
Wilford’s improvement is a momentary boost for a community that’s been ravaged by unthinkable pain and heartache over the past three days. In Wednesday’s school shooting, 17 people were killed and 16 were injured.
Wilford, who wears No. 20 for the Stoneman Douglas basketball team, was supposed to be playing in a playoff game on Thursday, but instead, was in the hospital going through multiple surgeries.
Her mother said on Facebook it wasn’t even clear exactly how many times she had been shot, but that she was alive was “a miracle.”
Missy Wilford, whose post was embedded on a GoFundMe page set up by friends of the family, said her daughter suffered gunshot wounds that “went through her back, crushing her ribs, piercing her right lung and exiting her stomach. Several went through the shoulder and traveled the length of her right arm before exiting.”
Wilford’s coach, Marilyn Rule, posted on Facebook early Thursday morning, “One of my basketball players is fighting for her life! Please pray for Maddy Wilford…We Love You Maddy.”
