Bryan Stow tries to give 'thumbs up' to medical staff
Stow’s family said in a blog post that the father of two was “very alert” Friday morning, when a nurse, nurse practitioner and neurosurgeon witnessed the gestures.
The news comes less than a week after Stow had a 30-second seizure and underwent emergency surgery for fluid buildup in his head.
Stow, a Santa Clara County paramedic, suffered serious brain injuries after he was attacked in March after the Dodgers’ home opener. He has remained hospitalized and heavily sedated since.
“As always with these steps forward, we are aware that it’s intermittent, and there will still be some steps back,” the blog read. “Even before the surgery, when he was at his best, his response to commands are not consistent and we remain cautiously optimistic.”
A third suspect in the case was also arrested Thursday on suspicion of being an accessory to the crime.
