Had an ischemic stroke due to blood clot in the brain. In unconscious state. Anything to be worried?

My father is 82 and had a ischemic stroke due to blood clot to the brain, right side. He was taken to the hospital and we are waiting for them to admit him into ICU . He is still unconscious but is breathing on his own, vitals are strong and he has alot of movement on his left side of his body. The fact that he is unconscious is extremely disturbing. Is this unusual?

Welcome to HCM,
In ischemic stroke, remain unconscious is very common due to cut down blood supply to brain tissues.
It may remain for prolong period till blood circulation in the brain improves.
With the treatment clot in the brain blood vessels will be dissolved and he will gain consciousness.
Ok and bye.
