It is normal to forget things, and even down the road she might remember things she can’t now but forget things she might remember now. It is called Aphasia (something you can read up more on). Just be patient, and glad to hear your aunt is doing better.

My mom went through the same and she was in ICU for a few months, and even now she forgets something that we might have talked about 2 mins ago but she will remember some things from 10 years ago.

    I;m so glad you aunt has recovered from her ruptured aneurysm. That is brilliant news. The difficulty she is having with memory is probably short term memory and that will hopefully improve when she’s out of intensive care.

    There is a very good website with wonderful pictures of what’s been happening to your aunt and of the operation.

    Hope it helps and she carries on getting well.

    That would be a hemorrhagic stroke and they’re very dangerous. She’s suffered brain damage which is why she’s starting to forget things.

    A stroke can happen one of two ways. A clot can interfere with blood flow and therefore brain function or a blood vessel can burst causing bleeding into the brain also interrupting brain function. different parts of the brain are responsible for different functions. Occipital (back) area is for site. Broccas (left side) is for speech.The middle sulcas area is for motor skills.
