The Giants fan who was seriously injured in a beating at Dodger Stadium last spring, Bryan Stow, appears to be improving at a Northern California Hospital.

The Stow family writes on its website that the 42-year old father of two has begun talking and interacting with his family.

The turnaround in Stow’s recovery follows shunt surgery more than a week ago to relieve pressure on his brain. Last Friday, he went outside for the first time in six months. He described the feeling of sitting in the sun as “magical.”

His family says he’s getting his sense of humor back too. He chastised his mom for using his cell phone in his hospital room, saying “she isn’t supposed to be on that.”

Stow,who’s a paramedic, was walking through the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the team’s opening day victory over the Giants when he was attacked. He spent months in a coma. Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood have been charged in connection with the March 31 beating.
