San Francisco General Hospital chief of neurosurgery Dr. Geoff Manley gave a progress report today on Bryan Stow that matches the optimism level expressed by his family last week.

According to the Associated Press, he “has made significant improvement” and “is responding well to surgery last week to replace a missing skull fragment.”

Last week Stow’s family posted on their website that he was able to move his limbs slightly on command and responded to family members being in the room by puckering his lips for a kiss, all of which Manley confirmed in his report today.

Good news all around, although Stow remains in serious condition nearly five months after being brutally beaten outside Dodger Stadium and the full scope of his potential recovery remains unclear.
