Good news about Bryan Stow's condition broke over the weekend. He was able to move his arms and legs and puckered his lips when his family visited him over the weekend. His family released a statement over the weekend on these developments (h/t Hardball Talk):
Yesterday we got the most response from Bry to date. He lifted his left leg slightly when asked, he raised his left arm everytime we asked if we could hold his hand, and the best part? Bonnie asked Bryan if she could have a kiss and every time she asked him, he puckered his lips.
Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan, has been hospitalized since Opening Day when he was brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium. In late July, Stow was taken off a ventilator to breathe on his own and the swelling in his brain had been reduced. At the beginning of August, doctors performed a lumbar drain on Stow to help alleviate excess fluid, helping him to reach the point he was at over the weekend.
Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, Stow's alleged attackers, will be in court on Aug. 10 for their arraignment on charges of mayhem, assault and battery.
