(Bay City News) Five months after beaten San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was admitted to San Francisco General Hospital, the hospital's chief of neurosurgery announced today that Stow's condition has improved, allowing him to be moved to a rehabilitation facility.
Stow was transferred to the unnamed facility this morning.
"It has really been a roller coaster with Bryan," Dr. Geoff Manley said at a news conference at the hospital this afternoon. "He's making dramatic progress."
Stow arrived at San Francisco General Hospital on May 16 from a hospital in Los Angeles where he had been treated following his March 31 beating outside Dodger Stadium after the season opener between the Dodgers and the Giants.
When Stow arrived at San Francisco General Hospital he was brought in comatose on a gurney and was on five anti-seizure medications. Although for months doctors encountered setbacks in Stow's treatment, he began to make significant improvements in the past month, and recently began speaking in sentence fragments and following simple commands.
