My mom had a bad headache last thursday. She had a cat scan on Wednesday and they found a significant brain bleed on the right front side. She is awaiting a bed at a hospital with a neurosurgon, but in the mean time she is in icu. She has no stroke symptoms other than loss of short term memory. In the last 12 hours, that is becoming sigificantly more noticeable. The staff are great but when I mention that, they just say it is probably because she is tired. I read up o vasospasm. Could it possible me a sign of that?
