Worried about dad
by: Kim9

My dad had a bleeding stroke 2 1/2 weeks ago. He wasn't found for 36 hours. His right arm also sustained injury from falling during his stroke and has blood clots in it. After getting out of icu, then the hospital and now in an inpatient rehab for the past week, yesterday and today he is much more confused than in the beginning of the stroke. He also had been doing well with PT on his right arm and could raise it all the out and extend him forearm. Today and yesterday we have noticed he cannot raise or lift his arm at all and can barely squeeze our hand. My sister and I are very concerned of this decline of his rehab. Is this normal? Could another small stroke happened or could a blood clot have dislodged and causing this?
