Bryan Stow is back in the hospital after suffering a blood clot.
The Santa Cruz paramedic and Giants fan suffered permanent brain damage after being brutally attacked by Dodgers fans following the 2011 season opener in Los Angeles.
The Stow family issued the following statement on their website:
Right now Bry is in the hospital with a large blood clot that reached from his thigh to his pelvis. He was first admitted last week and was immediately put on several blood thinners and then was released. The swelling didn’t go down and he was in a lot of pain. He was sent via ambulance to the ER and was again admitted Wednesday. He had a procedure done to have a filter put in his abdomen to catch any clots from breaking off and going into his lungs.
Needless to say, we are scared and worried. We thought we were past the point of being afraid of Bryan even surviving. The doctor told Bonnie last night that due to the size and hardness of the clot, he is surprised it didn’t kill him. Really tough words to hear and now that Bryan is more aware of what’s going on, he’s scared too.
Stow is expected to be in the hospital for at least the duration of the weekend.
Our best wishes to Bryan Stow in his battle to recovery after the horrible incident two years ago.
