Bryan Stow able to carry on a conversation

Bryan Stow, the victim of the Opening Day assault at Dodger Stadium, progressed this week to speaking with relatives and asking to see his children. It's a big turn for the better in his recovery.

"We are encouraged by Bryan Stow's continued neurological improvement and can report that he is beginning to talk again," Dr. Geoff Manley, chief of neurosurgery at San Francisco General Hospital, wrote in a statement. "However, he remains seriously injured and has several ongoing medical issues that we are currently managing.

"It is premature to predict where his long journey will end, and he is not out of the woods yet," Manley said. "We are monitoring him closely and treating him aggressively."
