Question by Elizabeth S: Is it normal to not remember your entire family after a stroke?
My mom who’s 52 had a stroke while she slept last night. This morning she was talking nonsense and was taken to the hospital where she doesnt know who her husband or any of her kids are. She doesnt even know who she is. Is this normal? Does memory come back? I can’t talk to her dr’s because, well I’m kind of disowned and I only know what random texts people send me about the situation.

Yes, this is very common. A stoke is a vascular ischemia in the brain which deprives the brain of blood and oxygen. This can cause temporary, or even perm., brain damage. I hope she gets better.
