Doctors upgrade condition of beaten Giants fan
SAN FRANCISCO -- Doctors say the medical condition of a San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodgers Stadium is continuing to improve, and they've upgraded him from critical to serious.
Bryan Stow had been in critical condition since the March 31 attack after the season opener between the Giants and Dodgers.
The 42-year-old Santa Cruz paramedic was moved last month from Los Angeles to San Francisco General Hospital, which has a top trauma center, to be closer to home.
Doctors there said Wednesday that Stow is now breathing without a ventilator and has been able to intermittently follow some basic commands. They say he's also been weaned off two of five anti-seizure medications used to address brain swelling and that they're lowering the doses of his remaining medications.
