In brief: Yes

All is not lost.
I have seen significant improvement when people work at it. This means working with a speech therapist as well as doing a lot of homework.

In brief: Time will tell

Broca's aphasia- from a stroke in the frontal operculum causes aphasia which with rehab, may improve.
While 88 year olds may not heal at the same rate as a younger person, only time and therapy will tell how much improvement is achieveable. Good luck to you!
