stroke both sides and bleed
My aunt had an ischemic stroke on both bides the right side was large and the left small.  They gave her TPN and she had a small bleed in the cerebellum also.  This was one week ago at this point she sleeps most of the day is mostly non responsive but I feel she is aware we are present.  The doctors said she has lost her ability to swallow.  Her vitals are good though.  She is 83 years old.  Can there be any expectation of recovery?

everyone is different and every stroke is different.  I'm sorry about your aunt :(  Is she being fed with a feeding tube I would guess if she can't swallow?  That is a common affect from stroke the inability to swallow :(

Does she open her eyes and recognize you?  Is she conscious when she opens her eyes?
