The news continues to get better about Bryan Stow, the Giants’ fan who was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium on March 31.

According to the Associated Press, Stow was transferred to a rehabilitation facility today after nearly seven months in hospitals.

“Bryan has been an extremely challenging patient,” said Dr. Geoff Manley, who is the hospital’s chief of neurosurgery and has been overseeing Stow’s care. “It has been a roller coaster, but he is young and strong and has made tremendous advances.”

Dr. Manley added that Stow is “starting to get up but not quite walking.”

The family requested that the name of Stow’s rehab facility not be released to the public, but said in a statement, “We feel immense relief today, knowing that Bryan is ready to start the next chapter of his story.”

Stow has begun speaking in recent weeks and had his tracheotomy tube removed just a few days ago. As always, the family continues to provide updates on his progress on their website.

    This is incredible. I really can’t wait until Stow is strong enough so he can tell the world his story.

    Great news!
    It may be emotionally dangerous, but it shouldn’t be physically dangerous to be a baseball fan.

    I wish he and his family the best. Hang in there.

    More good news. On time for post season baseball, too. He can watch the world series.
