Father had stroke 1 week ago-questions
Hi-First time on the boards! My dad had a stroke 1 week ago. I have a general question regarding it-he had it Sat night, (not clotting type of stroke, sorry forget the technical name), the first day or two he was talking a bit-alot of it unclear (most of it unclear). Anyway, during the week he had a fever for 2 days, which has been gone since yesterday, the bleeding and swelling in the brain has gone down a little. Yesterday he was opening his eyes a bit, and realized we were there. He even said 1 or 2 words,We left the hospital feeling encouraged, but now today, we couldn't wake him (it's been 1 week). He's 81, good health until now. Is this still the brain recovering from the swelling? One thing I have learned in the week, is that every stroke patient is different, but any idea how long this sleeping would continue, or what to expect?
