Prognosis for 90 year old?

dlefeb posted:
Hi, My 90 year old grandfather had a hemorrhagic stroke yesterday. He is alert, but cannot use his right arm and the right part of his face has also been affected. His speech, consequently, was affected too. From the sound of it, the hematoma wasn't too big and the bleeding has stopped. His blood pressure has gone back down (he does have a history of high blood pressure he takes meds for), but we're worried of course. Can anyone tell me what can be expected at this point, for someone his age? Thank you
