News & Updates

Today Bryan went in for a CT scan and an MRI. It was decided to stop the blood thinner for his blood clots and to put in an IVC filter. He has had this before to stop blood clots from shooting to his lungs. They stopped the blood thinner because he will also be getting another lumbar drain tonight or tomorrow. He just isn’t absorbing the fluid completely on his own. The drain will work slower this time around, since before it drained too much, too fast. They decided to do this tonight because the past week he has been extremely sleepy and has had very minimal response to commands. The EEG is also back on him to monitor for any seizure activity. We will keep you all posted.

We have met some great people during these past 4 months. 3 of those people are the friends that were with Bryan the night of his attack. Corey, Jeff and Matt. Unfortunately, Matt passed away July 31st.

Our family feels that we have no words of comfort to Matt’s loved ones, as we knew him such a short time. But in that short time, we came to know a great guy who was always smiling. We feel so extremely lucky and honored to have met him. This group of friends has had a rough 4 months; God…we pray for leniency. While Bryan was the one seriously injured that night, there were 4 victims. Please pray for Matt Lee and his loved ones, as well as Corey and Jeff…they will need strength to help them through these hard times.

Matt….May you rest in peace.

There are no words to express the sorrow felt by Matt's passing. This has been a horrible experience for Bryan as well as the 3 with him. Prayers have been going out to all of them and their families for all that they have also, along with all of you, had to endure since this senseless act 4 months ago. Continued prayers for healing for Bryan, we are all here pulling for you my friend ! Continued prayers for you, Stow family, for strength and faith! Never give up and always believe in those miracles !! And extra prayers for Matt's family, Corey and Jeff, may they find peace and strength during these trying times !!
Send love & hugz to all !

Good evening, Stow family. Thanks, as always, for such a lengthy (and well-written!) update on Bryan's condition. For those of us who watch from the sidelines, this website is our only way to track Bryan's progress and I know I speak for many others when I say that we truly appreciate how much information you provide to the public.

I'm sorry to hear that Bryan's progress hasn't been significant of late but it is really reassuring that he has such a great treatment team. And as far as his friend Matt Lee, I read the news reports of his untimely death with disbelief. My sympathies go out to Matt's family and friends for their loss.

I am deeply saddened by the news of Matt Lee's passing. Such a tragic loss. Stay strong Stow family. Prayers continue for all of you, including Bryan's friends and Matt's family. Thank you for continuing to update us on Bryan's condition. So many people are praying for Bryan's return to good health and we watch for this update for the day you tell us that Bryan has really woken up and is functioning. I'm going to say an extra prayer for the doctors today that they can find a way to heal Bryan soon. We don't know you, but we all love you Bryan more than you can ever know.

I can't even begin to feel what you all are going through! You just can't seem to catch a break and personally I myself feel so helpless and wish there were more I could do. I do know I can continue to pray and support you all and everything that you must go through. I hope you find some sort of comfort to know that you are not alone in this............we are all still here BELIEVING, HOPING AND PRAYING. Please stay strong and believe that the Lord is taking his time on Bryan because he wants to make sure he gets it right! Never think that you are alone in any of this, we are here for the long haul! Hang in there and may God continue to watch over you and give you the strength you need to make it through another day!

For everything there is season, and a time for every matter heaven.

It's amazing how something written so long ago could have so much meaning thousands of years later.

When it's time for Bryan make the improvments we want it will happen. Everything in our lives are based on time.

As I've mentioned in earlier posts, there's major issue, at least for me haviing a lumbar aka Becker tube in the lumbar section of my spine. I didn't even know that I had it.

The people of this website will always be there in love, thoughts and prayers.

I'm sooo sorry to hear about his friend Matt, may he rest in peace. Also may Brian make it thru this tuff time. He will have an Angel watching over him now, and telling him about all the love that is surrounding him everywhere. Also, that justice will prevail with the 2 guy's that have been caught I hope they never see the light of day. I pray for you and all of the families out there that have been bullied for being different!!!

Good evening Bryan and family. So sorry to hear about Matt's passing. Please send my love and prayers to his family. I will pray for his soul and also for his family. I believe that Matt is in a much better place, so praying for strength for his family is the most important at this time. I pray for you all, and for the strength you have to have to get through this critical time. I truly believe that Bryan is going to pull through and start to get better. It will all happen in the Lords time. He has not forgotten. Just believe and the Lord will not let you down. God Bless you day and night and God Bless Bryan. I have never met Bryan but I feel blessed to have met your family. Stay strong and give Bryan my Love. Linda

That is so sad. All the men involve are so young. I will keep Mr.Lee family in my prayers this has to be so hard on everyone. Sometime it's so hard to make any sense out of what is going on. I don't know how you do.
Again thank you so much for the updates. I know this has to be so hard on you and I am not sure if writing about it helps you or not. But I have to say it so nice to hear what going on from the family vs. news. I check this site out often and I will do so until Bryan is heal 100% from this.
As always you are in my prayer and now I will add Mr. Lee family as well.
May God keep and hold all family that have been effect by this near his.
With lots of love.

I am so sorry about Matt's passing..he and his family are in our prayers. Thank you so much for keeping us posted, it really does help us all to share what is happening in the good times and the bad.

Love and prayers continue!...Deb

Drear Stow family,
Thank you for takeing the time to keep us all updated about Bryan. Hopefully taking some of the fluid off made Bryan more alert.

When I had pressure build up I slept just the same way. When I had my shunt placed I came out of surgery talking to everyone.

But I had pressure build up after a brain tumor surgery. I did not recieve the meds to keep the swelling down after the surgery. I was just a mistake.

If you need it I can give you links to doctor that specalize. Pluse links to information to questions you have or anyone else needing help.

I have been wondering if ther is any physical therapy coming in to keep Bryan's muscles from tightening up?

In just a few days my muscles tightened up. But I also had to learn to walk again. But this is nothing that you can't deal with. It will just help to keep his muscles limber.

All my love and prayers are with you...

Hi Bryan & Stow Family,

I heard about Matt Lee and just could not believe it. I am praying for leniancy for Corey & Jeff, for Matt's family and Bryan. It can not be easy, however please don't give up. Be strong for each other, for Matt's family and for Bryan. Life is never simple, never easy and definately never fair. However by our each choice we get up and we can make it by choice. Now we really need each other to really stand together, stay strong and continue to believe in Bryan. Give Matt's family support to get through these tough days and allow Corey & Jeff to lean on us as they are really hurting as well.

Please continue to believe, continue to reach out to Matt's family, Corey & John, and never give up on Bryan!!

I really feel for all of you being in the public eye like you are and people making stupid comments. I just dealt with that earlier today and I'm not even in the spotlight. Some douche made a comment online about what a loser my husband is for falling and getting a head injury even though it wasn't his fault. The douche made several comments even after I pointed out that making fun of those that almost died or those that get seriously injured or even those that are handicapped isn't nice. My husband isn't handicapped, I was just making a point to this guy. So I can certainly feel your pain with some of the rude comments people make after articles posted on the internet. It's so hard not to comment back.

Hang in there. The kind people of the world are the only ones that matter. The rest will meet karma someday. Let God sort out the good from the bad.

I am from the Dallas area, in TEXAS. I just wanted to say, we are praying hard in TEXAS. I feel so awful for you. I want you to remember, Romans 8:26, The Spirit intercedes with groanings when words are too hard to form in prayer. You are not alone in this. The whole world is watching and cheering ALL of you forward. Bless your family.

And WHEN Bryan gets well, he is welcome to a home game in Texas, against any team he chooses, even Texas teams!

Bryan.... The world is listening and watching for you...

Bryan and family: I think of Bryan often as I work for the County of Santa Clara and conduct first-aid training for my Dept. with a former paramedic that knew Bryon and I have the upmost respect and admiration for paramedics as they are true unsung heroes everyday. I always wonder if Bryan may have helped me on a medical call in the past. I attended the AMR BBQ and bought a few shirts and a hat and they are wearing out! I always wear them at Giants games and I always get a thumbs up from fans when they see the shirt. Where can I buy more shirts and direct others to buy that would go to Bryans fund?

Hello Bryan, I met you today, and while you have never known me, I have followed your valiant journey and feel I know you. You are the same age as my son, so I feel a personal connection. You are as handsome in person as many posts say, and it was wonderful seeing you out and about. Please know you are, and have been, in my thoughts and prayers. I wish you continued success in your challenging recovery. You are an inspiration to so many, and while it may be difficult for you to see, you are a gift to not only your wonderful family, but to those who have never met you--but care so deeply for you.

Hey Bryan, we're all proud of you for being such a fighter and survivor. We know this has been profoundly difficult for you and your family. I think you and your family are amazing people. This is just a short note to tell you that you guys are often on my mind. Oh and Bryan if you're wondering how I know you, that's easy - you're the world famous Mr. Bryan Stow! As always, my thanks to the Stow family for providing this update.

Hi Bryan, just stopping by to say hello and to let you know that I read most of your website yesterday about your injury and the strength, courage, and patience you have shown during your recovery. You have a great team of "cheerleaders" with your many friends and family and their love for you is so easy to see. I will be thinking about you and sending prayers to God above to strengthen you both physically and spiritually. Remember that He is the greatest Healer and His love for you knows no end.
March 31, 2014 - 3 years..
To Bryan and Family, sending all of you a giant hug and so much love. God is definitely cheering all of you on, too. From here on earth, please always remember that so very many people are, too. I'm no longer a MLB fan but will always be a fan of team Stow. Peace and love. God Bless.

I know another opening day will never go by, without thinking of you and your family, and I do think of you and your family often. Being a fellow Giants fan myself, an EMT in Oregon, and our birthdays only 16 days apart (same year too!) that you are a true inspiration to me, and I send you best wishes and prayers to you Bryan. I have told my wife and two daughters about you, and we look no further for a hero. Stay strong Bryan!! Go Giants!!
