In brief: Time

This means the tissue has recently died in small areas (punctate) of the cerebellum. It is hard to tell (without examining, watching the changes, and knowing the history) to predict the outcome.

In brief: No cure

Time and a search for treatable causes of stroke, ruling out or treating hypertension, atrial fibrillation, carotid disease, infective endocarditis, autoimmune disease, and hypercoagulable states.
Then physical therapy and patience as the healing process slowly progresses over the next 2 years. Patience and good friends (like you) help immensely.
