Stroke in the pons

My dad just had the worst stroke, they say it is in the pons. He is currently in a coma, they say his chances are close to 0% to recover. They weren't even able to do surgery because they said its already badly damaged. So now he lays in a coma, its been few weeks, he opens his eyes but he isn't able to see he doesn't follow finger. Could anyone educate me more about this?

How is your Dad?  My Mom had a stroke in her pons 2.5 years ago, sadly she did not make it.  She was in a coma for a week and we took her off life support.  I am so sorry about your Dad?  How old is he?
