Had stroke by aspratic pneumonia. Was in coma. Recovery?

hi, my grandad sufferd a stroke early saturday morning. he was in a coma all day sat and sunday and the hospital told us he sufferd a catastrophic stroke accompanied by aspratic pneumonia . no fluids or drips of any kind have been administerd and we were told they were just making him comfortable and it would just be a matter of time. today things have changed, he has awoken from the coma, and has recognised our voices and responded with yes to several questions. he seems in alot of discomfort and has no pupil dilation but there seems hope. we have asked for fluids and antibiotics but the hosp think its best to just keep him comfortable. he has not had fluids since friday but still producing urin through a cathetr. i dont like to see him in distress but if he has had this change today could a recovery be possible, and should he have fluids??
