Giants fan Bryan Stow, injured in an Opening Day attack in Los Angeles, underwent successful shunt surgery, his family announced on their website Tuesday.
According to the site, Stow's "surgery went smooth and the CT scan came back looking good." The family also reported that they saw Bryan and his eyes were open. The Santa Cruz paramedic was attacked on Opening Day at Dodger Stadium and has been hospitalized since. Earlier this week his lawyers estimated that Stow’s medical costs would exceed $50 million. Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, are charged with mayhem, assault and battery in the attack on Stow. Prosecutors contend that Sanchez hit two of Stow's friends before chasing down Stow and punching him from behind in the side of his head.
I know this is a day to be rejoicing about Bryan and it looks like an odd place to put his offenders pictures. I figure anytime I can get these two guys seen the better.I feel like it will be like Casey Athony. If we don't keep talking this to death these fools will get off.
This is not only a hate crime it reflect back to our kids as teaches them about bulling. If these 2 men that assaulted Bryan have children. What kind of example does this set for them?
Does knocking a man down... having his head hit the pavement and bounce off the ground. While this man is bleeding. Set a good example for being a "dad."
Oh! While he was down and knocked out! Sanchez! and Norwood Started kicking a lifeless Bryan Stow while he lay there bleeding.
His friend,Matt, that has recently passed away because of a nut allergy, through his body in between Sanchez and Norwood while they were kicking Bryan after he was down. Matt is a hero!
I was so happy to here that Bryan was awake after surgery. Many of the Blog post from his blog had said he was very sleepy.
When I was 8 and I had my my first shunt I remember my parents and my physical therapist asking when I was going to start waking up more from the anesthesia. They assumed it was the surgery since I had not really woke up since I had my brain tumor removed.
After the shunt surgery I came out much like Bryan alert and and able to respond to comands. It helped my recover a good bit. Although much like Bryan I had a lot of recover to go.
