Yes it is possible if the stroke was small. Let me clarify some of the answers. A transient ischemic attack or TIA and a reversible ischemic neurologic deficit or RIND are NOT strokes. They produce stroke-like symptoms but not actual damage. They do increase the likelihood of future strokes. TIAs and RINDs are similar to a person who has chest pain but does not have a heart attack. It is unusual for a person to be in a hospital for 2 weeks due to a stroke so I assume there must be more to the story. Early and aggressive rehabilitation is critical for stroke victims. I am truly sorry to hear about your grandfather and wish him a full and speedy recovery and God's blessing to your family.
