My mother suffered a minor stroke a week ago. She was not able to talk for a day then started talking
(She was talking little slow but remembered most of the things) after that but suddenly stopped for few hours and started talking regularly there after (She is not able to recollect few of the life events and seems lost in her own world). Doctor ruled out Aphasia, since as per him there can not be sudden change or deviation in speech in aphasia. As i mentioned she is not attentive and seems confused most of the times. Can it be related to depression or short term memory loss (she remembers most of the events but forgot only few interrelated memories)?
