Injured Giants fan Bryan Stow is taking another step forward on his road to recovery.

Special Section: Ongoing Coverage of Bryan Stow Case

Stow's family posted Sunday that he was transferred out of Santa Clara Valley Medical Center last week to a location that appears to be outside of the Bay Area.

Stow was beaten outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day last year. He suffered severe brain damage.

Timeline: Bryan Stow Case

In Sunday's blog post, Stow's family did not list his new location but said there were no rehab facilities close to home.

"(Bryan) shares an apartment with 2 other TBI patients and has someone with him at all times helping him. He still needs someone to transfer him to and from his chair, dress him, make his meals, etc.," according to Sunday's blog post entitled "Nothing Else Matters."

Apparently the move has been hard on Stow. He's been having trouble sleeping and at one point he admitted he was scared.

Stow's family said that one of them is with him at all times. His mother has taken a leave of absence from work in order to make that happen.

The 43-year-old is working on learning how to move to and from his chair, dress himself and make his own meals. The new therapy center should help him do that, according to his family.

It has been an up-and-down road for Stow. He celebrated his birthday last month. His family threw him a surprise party with a group of close friends. Unfortunately, Stow did not remember the party the next day. His short-term memory continues to be a problem.

The two men accused of brutally beating him are still awaiting trial.
