Bryan Stow Has Undergone Emergency Surgery in San Francisco
The case of Bryan Stow keeps steadily on with its ups and downs. While he has been seemingly doing well in recent weeks, responding to commands and moving parts of his face and body, yesterday doctors at the San Francisco hospital where he's being treated had to perform emergency surgery to drain fluid from his brain, according to a website set up by Stow's friends and family to keep the public informed of his progress. The fluid, they write, caused Stow to have a 30 second seizure. He had been experiencing seizures regularly after first being admitted to the hospital following being severely beaten at Dodger Stadium, and for weeks thereafter.
While draining the fluid, doctors also had to remove a flap of bone that was put in on Friday, and found and removed a new growth. This represents a setback, as his caretakers had hoped the bone flap, which replicated the right side of his head, would help him along in his recovery.
Being held in connection to the beating is Giovanni Ramirez, however formal charges have yet to been pressed against him.
