hi, I had a stroke 2 yrs. ago at the age of 37. It took me 6 months of physical and occupational therapy and a full year to regain the strength in my right side. Sleeping is normal. I did that alot since it took me a while to complete 1 simple task. Encourage her once her MD clears it, to not give up with the therapies as it does take alot of time and patience. Seek out a support group for stroke victims via the american heart association. That is what I did. I cld their number and asked for someone who lived near me to give me a call to answer my questions. That really made a difference in my recovery as well. To meet a person close to my age who suffered from a stroke plus I attended some of the educational meetings and learned alot ranging from driving again to exercises and diet. My husband went with me seeing as he was taking care of me & seeing to it that I got all the help I needed. I am doing much better now but I couldn't have done it without the support from my husband, family, friends, and American Heart Association.
