It's an astonishing image of recovery. Just 238 days after being nearly beaten to death by a couple of hooligans in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, Bryan Stow celebrated Thanksgiving at home.

The 42-year-old Giants fan bucked the odds and was released from San Francisco General Hospital in October. He was then transferred to a rehab clinic and now the Los Angeles Times reports he has shown "significant progress" since undergoing shunt surgery to take pressure off his brain.

In a photo posted on his website, Stow is seated in a wheelchair surrounded by close family and friends.

The LAPD charged Louis Sanchez, 29 and Marvin Norwood, 30, in connection to the attack, according to the Times.

Stow's family has filed a massive lawsuit against financially troubled Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. Stow's lawyer asked Major League Baseball for a 'reasonable settlement' with McCourt being forced to sell the team.

Earlier this month, the father of two continued to show stunning progress in therapy, according to the family website. "He remembers the important things in his life; his children, his family, his friends, his favorite football and baseball teams."

Ann Stow, Bryan's mother, says her son was "basically dead" a few months ago.
