almost 3 yrs ago my mother had a major stroke, it paralyzed her right side completely and she has Global Apahsia. She has few words, yes, no, maybe, and back. Back is a word that covers everything, has nothing to do with her back. Anyways, she suffer from another stroke last week, it was located on the opposite side of her brain. I called my mother a few minutes ago and I swear she has more words. Small words, and making complete sentences with them. Can this happen? She has been 2 yrs with no real words and now she can say words she has not said since the first stroke! My heart is racing over this, I want her to get more speech therapy and I know she may never get any big words but more small words would make her life so much better. I called my sister who visited with her yesterday and she said she noticed Mother was using more small words that she has not heard her use since her first stroke. If anyone has any information on something like this I would love to know about it.
