Paramedic Bryan Stow, who was critically injured after being attacked by a Dodgers fan on Opening Day in Los Angeles, had emergency surgery this week and some eye movement that gave his family hope.
The website, support4bryanstow.com, had this entry:
Yesterday was a rough day for Bryan and an emotional one for us.
Bryan had to have emergency surgery yesterday morning due to massive amounts of fluid building up that caused a 30 second seizure.
Dr. Manley removed the bone flap that was put in on Friday and he found some sort of growth he had never seen before. The growth was removed and a filter put in to help drain the fluid from his head.
The four of us couldn’t get to the hospital fast enough, where we stayed all day by his side. Our saving grace was that Dr. Zada came up from Los Angeles to see Bryan. Dr. Zada has become like one of the family and we had a great visit with him! He spent a lot of time with Bryan and by the end of the day saw some movements and slight right eye opening.
The site also lists several new fundraisers, including an Aug. 6 shrimp boil at Joe's Bar in Boulder Creek and a poker run at Angel's Camp Aug. 9.
