Giants' Fan Stow Takes Another Step Back

Family says Bryan Stow remains hospitalized with blood clots

San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow has taken a "huge step backwards" according to the website maintained by his family.

Stow remains hospitalized at an undisclosed location with blood clots and cannot stand for more than a few seconds -- even with help from others. Doctors are trying to find the correct balance between his blood thinner and anti-seizure medication.

Stow suffered permanent brain damage when he was attacked in a Dodger Stadium parking lot on March 31, 2011. His alleged attackers, Louie Sanchez, 20, and Marvin Norwood, 30, pleaded not guilty to multiple counts in November.

Here is the full statement from his family:

"Bryan is still in the hospital. The trouble is trying to find the right balance and levels between his blood thinner and anti-seizure medications. Due to this problem, new blood clots have formed. One of us is with him every day and it is really hard to see him back in the hospital especially for so long. This is a huge step backwards for him physically. Even with two people helping him, he can stand for only seconds. We are trying to keep his and our spirits up and are now hoping to have him back at his rehab facility apartment by his birthday next Tuesday. If not, then we celebrated at a hospital last year, so we will celebrate at another one this year."
