3 months: Brain hemorrhage typically gets absorbed around 3 months. A TIA by definition is an ischemic stroke where there is no hemorrhage and is completely reversible. Therefore, your Dad's hemorrhagic stroke cannot also be called a TIA. It is possible that he has had a hemorrhagic stroke and now has TIAs as well. The clot absorption does not mean your Dad will recover from his stroke. They are unrelated.

This is tough: A hemorrhagic stroke can be very critical, and one year survival rate is about 40%, but that said, proper management with careful interventions may be miraculous. Need to pay strict attention to blood coagulation status, and cardiovascular stability, besides the rehabilitation programs. This is a balancing act, so, communicate closely with the doctors. You can provide emotional support.

Yes: Tia's are essentially strokes that don't progress to permanent damage. So any TIA is a risk factor for stroke.
