Sorry to hear about your husband. Has your husband had the disabilities you describe since his stroke?  What does his doctor say?  Did he have any physical therapy after his stroke?  If not, he may still benefit from some.

If these are new symptoms, he should see a doctor about it.

Good luck.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother.  It must be terribly difficult for you.  Unfortunately there is no way to know the timing of when your mother will be able to eat.  That's why the doctors don't have much to tell you.  However the fact that you say she is on rehab therapy is an excellent sign that they do believe that she can get better.  How much better is impossible to say.  But keep visiting her and talking to her.  Your presence with her and interaction with her is likely to help her and will definately make her feel better.

Do take care.
