Bryan Stow had been showing some signs of improvement in recent weeks, but as Jessica Pasko reports in the Mercury-News, he has suffered setbacks. Infections, to be precise. Both urinary tract and staph infections. His temperature has spiked to 104 at times.

Anyone who has had a loved one in the hospital knows just how frustrating these long hospital stays can be.  So often the side effects and complications inherent in the treatment are as much if not more perilous than the underlying malady.

    The hazards of hospital care. Stick enough sick people in one place and have people go from room to room and, no matter how often you wash or how careful you are, the germs spread. He needs to get home soon. Its the only chance he has of improving from the underlying condition without further complication from nosocomial infections.

    Let’s hope this is just a temporary set back in his recovery.

    I hope Mr. Stow recovers fully, but do we really need these constant updates about slight changes in his health? Actually, judging by the thumbs-ups, people really do care about this poor guy’s urinary tract infections and such, so I guess I’m in the minority here.

      Yes, you are in the minority. Those of us that actually entertain the idea of human emotions want to know how he’s doing, especially those of us that live in other parts of the country and only get updates when Craig shares information with us.

      Get better Bryan Stow. Prayers are with you. I’ve never had a staph infection, but my brother-in-law did and THAT nearly killed him. They are dangerous. I’m sure they’re treating him for it as best they can. God bless, Bryan.
