stroke

hi, my nan had a mini stroke yesterday, she doesnt have complete paralysis in her right arm only when she thinks about. she has moved it, held things, squeezed things. but when we or the dr ask her to do something she cant do it. is this a normal after effect? we cant get a straight answer out of the drs they are just monitoring her obs

It could be a result of her stroke.  I would greatly recommend that you get her to physical therapy to get help with her voluntarily being able to move.  The most progress is made during the first 6 months.  Does she seem upset by the lack of movement?  Let me know if she is getting any physical therapy.
