It’s been over two years since Bryan Stow was brutally beaten outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day. But now, after nearly dying of his injuries and a long, hard rehabilitation, he’s heading home:
Bryan Stow’s family said on its website Wednesday that Stow will now live with them in the Santa Cruz, Calif., area after spending about a year at the Centre for Neuroskills in Bakersfield, a live-in rehabilitation facility.
Stow’s family talks about his move into the rehab facility and then, ultimately, home on their website.
There is a bit of a cloud to all of this, however: part of the reason Stow is leaving where he is now is that the insurance, as opposed to the doctors, decided that he didn’t need to be there anymore. I hope that’s true and not a function of a health care system where the tail often wags the dog.
