It depends on what part of the brain is affected and to what extent. For stroke statistics, please see the link below. Yes, I will pray for him and for you and your family.

    This is quite serious and I am sorry for you and your family. The spouse or your brother-in-law`s representative should ask the physician in charge of his opinion. I will be praying for him and family. May you feel the presence of God`s love during this time.

    Let’s just say you should plan for the worst. I’m not saying to not hope but the reality is there’s very little chance he’ll wake up and even if he does there would be severe brain damage.
    God bless you an help you and your family through this difficult time. I am praying for him and you.

    Describing a stroke as “massive” indicates a grave prognosis, I’m afraid.
    Patients who have such a stroke typically are not candidates for neurosurgery and do not recover. If they do survive, they end up with profound disabilities.
    Speech, language, recognition of relatives and staff, swallowing, and even their own existence to themselves are severely limited, if they exist at all.
    These patients have no potential for improvement, and as such, are not rehabilitation candidates.
    Death is often due to multiple infections and multi-system organ failure.
    Sorry to be so blunt, but if he was my relative, I’d let him go.
