They said they began the effort Tuesday morning and it would take 2 to 3 days to see any changes in his condition.  The first attempt failed because Stow suffered seizures.

    They said his family remains at his bedside.

    Several members of the current Giants have also reached out to the Stow family. They have offered support and help in any way they can.  Pitcher Tim Lincecum donated $25,000 to the family's support fund.

    Stow was attacked from behind while leaving a Giants Dodger game in Los Angeles on March 31. The attackers, wearing Dodger apparel, have not been caught. Stow's family says he may have suffered permanent brain damage.
