Gym today

I went to the gym and I was trying to ask this lady to fix my machine and I started crying and I kept apologizing to her and she stated that she understood and I said it was because I had a stroke in my brain and she said she never know anyone who had what I have but she worked with people that had different problems.

I apologized anyway and she said anytime I needed her help with anything she would be honored to help me.

Hello, this is the first time I'm writing to you. I am 22 years old and I have a 65 years old grandmother, she is the most important person in my life and love her with all my heart. Unfortunately, she had a massive stroke yesterday morning which had affected two thirds of her brain's left hemisphere. The doctor said we still have to wait to see what's gonna happen with her but I don't know much about the recovery process and want to know if she will get better. I am hopping for the best. She is a strong woman and will fight until the end, even though the doctor said she can't understand what we are saying I know she can, she moves her head when we ask her questions and tears when every time she sees us. Please any information about the recovery process and anything that could help me understand what is going to happen now and what I need to do will be very helpful. God Bless you all!

Advice from Stroke victims ?

I am sorry if my question sounds a little odd, but its more for comfort, my gran had a stroke last wednesday, we had her taken straight to hospital, up until friday she could still talk a bit, since then she has had 3 major strokes in hospital (what the doctors say) and is just basically laying there, when we talk to her she can still squeeze our hand when we ask her too, she can open her eyes and mouth slightly and when you ask her a question she can groan to us.
As she is 89 years old the doctors have said her brain is that badly damaged there is not any chance of recovery and if she has another stroke its likely to finish her off.
The reason I am asking this question is that I would like to know from people that have suffered a stroke and are now recovering and moving around, whether my gran will be in any pain, of course its an question I only want to hear the answer "No", but it would be reassuring to hear and know how se might be feeling and thinking, its horrible seeing her like this as she has always been an independent lady, she still lived by herself and could cook a meal for you up until last wednesday, so to see her in hospital have nurses cleaning her is very upsetting.
I know its a fact that all life eventually comes to an end and my gran has had a good life, 89 years old with no illnesses until now, she has always had family around here, she even went on holiday to Spain last month with my mum and dad but it always comes as a shock.
I won't go on but would appreciate to hear from anyone who knows and has experienced a stroke and are happy to share anything with me that may make my family take some comfort in knowing.
As I say, its a strange time for me as not used to anyone close to me getting ill so I am sorry if my question seems inapproriate and sorry if it has offended anyone
Thank you in advance

stroke recovery for middle aged man?

My 37-year-old father just suffered a massive stroke (clot) on the left side of his brain. He had the surgery to take care of the swelling, and he seems to be doing very well. He is very stubborn and always motivated. Is it possible for him to make a full recovery?
