SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow has been receiving holiday wishes from the U.S. public after spending Thanksgiving with his family.

Stow's family Web site this weekend displayed a group shot taken at an undisclosed rehabilitation facility with Stow in the center, still confined to a wheelchair but looking happy and healthy as he continues to recover from a serious beating in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles Times said.

The responses posted by visitors to the Web site applauded Stow for maintaining his dignity and resolve.

"The real man here is Bryan, because he is not letting this keep him down. To beat someone into a coma, you just need an evil spirit, but to recover from this evil act, it takes great strength and great resolve," one post said.

Stow suffered a serious head injury in the alleged assault last spring and was moved from a San Francisco hospital to a rehab center just last month.

The San Francisco Chronicle said Stow has been making steady progress in his occupational and speech rehabilitation.
