Hope all goes well- respect is due to him and others who risk their lives doing what they think is right.

On August 12, Ai travelled to Sichuan's capital, Chengdu, to follow the trial of his fellow investigator and activist Tan Zuoren, who was charged with subversion. He told the Sueddeutche Zeitung by telephone from his hospital bed that police came to his hotel and hit him on the head.

Since then, he has suffered from headaches and has been unable to concentrate, he told the newspaper in its Wednesday edition. The pain worsened while he was on a trip to Germany and doctors advised him to have emergency surgery, he said.

Two holes were drilled into his head to reduce the pressure on his brain, he said. "The operation went smoothly," Ai wrote on Twitter. "I am doing well.

He is very provocative

The police might have beaten him up.  But he probably has provoked a fight.  He despises authority, I find him very aggressive and provocative even in his writings, and in his phone conversation with a PSB head published in his blog.

And his brain surgery - he may be having a stroke

You think the police beating him up was in accordance with 'the Law'?  As for his 'humbling' lesson, so far that lesson seems to be: no matter how rich and famous you are, the police will still feel they can do whatever they like to you.  For people who are brave enough, that lesson could motivate them to keep trying.
