Bryan Stow, Beaten Giants Fan, Gives Nurse Thumbs-Up, Family Says

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO -- The family of the San Francisco Giants fan severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium says the hospitalized father of two appeared to mouth his last name and might have tried to give a thumbs-up.

Bryan Stow suffered serious brain injuries when he was attacked after the Dodgers' home opener in late March. His family said in a blog post that Stow's medical team saw him alert and making the gestures Friday morning.

Stow underwent emergency surgery Monday for fluid buildup in his head that caused a seizure.

Doctors have kept him under heavy sedation since the attack to prevent seizures. His family says he was asleep when they arrived at San Francisco General Hospital on Friday. He remains in serious condition.

Two suspects were arrested Thursday in connection with Stow's beating.
