He is suffering from brain stroke. MRI images of brain shows multiple lacunar brain infarcts. if his symptoms are worsening get him admitted in near by hospital. ensure adequate food and fluid intake. Medications prescribed are appropriate. stroke in old age usually improves slowly. if his weakness or numbness stabilized then it's ok. he will recover gradually. if it is increasing then you have to be careful. he must be admitted and properly monitored
