Thank you for posting your query.
The drop in RBC
count is not related to the brain stroke
The causes for this include poor intake of food, loss from the GI (which would be confirmed with endoscopy
and clolonoscopy) and destruction of RBC in the blood (hemolytic anemia
So, if his intake is good and there is no GI bleed, then we should investigate for hemolytic anemia.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
