Bryan Stow Making Slow Progress, Family Says
Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who suffered a traumatic brain injury after being brutally beaten outside of Dodger Stadium in March, is making slow progress at a rehabilitation center, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
According to the Chronicle, Stow’s family said the 42-year-old paramedic from Santa Cruz still shows signs of confusion.
"While Bryan knows the answers to some questions he is asked, he also has moments of confusion and he answers personal questions incorrectly," the family said, according to the report.
On their Website, Stow’s family thanked San Francisco General Hospital doctors and staff "for taking the best care of Bryan and for taking care of (the family) well."
The family said Stow “got right to work” upon his arrival at the undisclosed rehabilitation center, the Chronicle reports.
“This is a big move for Bryan, a step forward in terms of progress,” the family said. “With all his progress, Bryan still has a lot of work to do, and he has a long way to go. As always, the outcome is unknown and that is very difficult. But we are very determined and excited to start this next chapter and to help Bryan in any possible way we can."
Stow was beaten after the Dodgers’ and Giants’ Opening Day game March 31 and suffered severe contusions to both frontal lobes of his brain after a blow caused him to slam his head on concrete, according to the Chronicle.
The Chronicle reports that two San Bernardino County men have pleaded not guilty to charges of mayhem, assault and battery in the beating of Stow, who is still unable to walk.
