    Oversleeping after stroke

    Hi, My live-in boyfriend had a supposedly minor hemorraghic stroke in the sub palatine region of the thalamus about six weeks ago. There isn't any apparent damage. He scores the same as he did before stroke on the mini-mental status exam with mild cognitive impairment. He has begun sleeping up to 13 hours at night and 2-3 hours during the day. Should I be calling the doctor re this. He seems normal when he is awake and up, just a tad more forgetful.
