    My mom recently suffered a intercranial stroke

    Happened last week while she was working out at the gym, her left side went limp. Apparantly she had been suffering from a brain bleed. So I need some answers. For a few days after the stroke she could barely open her eyes because of swellness of the brain, but could talk although we could barely hear her.
