AVM Stroke

My mother 71 yo suffered a massive bleed on left side of brain due to an AVM she's had since birth. The bleed has caused severe swelling in the brain and the Dr's are giving us very little hope for recovery. They initially said her right side would be affected and with time and therapy she may improve but now they want us to consider Hospice or long term facility. My mother is a strong independent woman that looks and dresses like a 40 yo. She is vibrant and strong. Am I being foolish to hope that they are wrong? The stroke occurred 2 weeks ago and the AVM is inoperable. Any advice?
