New User - Help!! I know nothing about Strokes!!

Hello everyone. My mom is 53 yrs old and had a stroke. She was admitted to the hospital on Sunday and she just got medically cleared as Stable so she can do Rehab. Initially, she was able to move her right hand slightly. Now she no longer can move her right hand. PT is also saying she’s getting very fatigued when she walks which at first she wasn’t having this problem. Is this because of potential swelling on the brain? Is this normal? The doctors said the stroke was bad and there is a lot of brain damage, Yet she can walk, talk and she comprehends what’s going on around her. I am concerned that she is getting weaker and I am looking forward to Rehab. I have no idea what’s normal or not. Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated!

Hello and sorry to hear what happened
Nothing is normal in the stroke world , what you need is love, hope , family,time but most of all is luck
Be there for her as this is going to rock her to the core and all she has that cares is family
Hope all works out
