Giants fan beaten in LA ready to be moved back to San Francisco 

The family of injured San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow said they wanted to move him back to San Francisco, and now he is in stable enough condition to make the trip, according to a posting on the family’s website.

Stow, a 42-year-old father of two from Santa Cruz, was attacked by two men outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day after a Giants game. Stow, who was wearing a Giants jersey, had texted his cousin during the sixth inning to say that he felt unsafe at the game. Stow has been in a coma since the attack.

Earlier this week, his family announced that they would like to move Stow to UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco.

On Friday, his family posted on its website: “The day has finally come! Bryan is now stable enough to bring home up north.”

The post, which did not include a timeframe for moving Stow, also included a theme song for the move: Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home.”

Stow's condition has been touch-and-go since the attack, but he is finally well enough to be transferred to San Francisco on Monday at the earliest, according to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center spokeswoman Rosa
Saca.

On May 1, doctors stopped the medication that was keeping Stow comatose. They were considering having Stow undergo surgery but decided against that after finding a slight buildup of fluid in his brain, Saca said.

Stow still hasn't woken up, but he has shown signs of improving. His eyes have opened and he responds to stimulation, and doctors have reduced his treatment to six anti-seizure medications, Stow's family wrote on their
website.

"He has a lot of eye movement under his eyelids and his mouth is moving more. Could be involuntary...but we'll take it," read a blog entry posted on Wednesday.

Police are still searching for the two suspects.
