Paralytic anesthesia & Stroke

Our son, 20 mos, has had multiple surgeries for hydrocephaly/shunt placements.  Following a recent surgery, he was placed on paralytics to prevent movement for 5 days.  As he was coming off the anesthesia he developed a very high fever 106 F and had a stroke followed by several seizures.  He was temporarily paralyzed on the right side of his body.  He continues to have daily cluster seizures.  He had no prior history of seizures or epilepsy.  How likely is it that the seizures and stroke are related to the anesthetics?
