In brief: Need more info

Pneumonia & heart enlargement in his case may or may not have been related to each other. Treatment will depend on the type & severity of lung infection, results from investigations (chest xray, blood tests, echocardiogram etc.
), cause of heart enlargement & overall patient's clinical picture. Please discuss it with your doctor to understand how these above factors relate to your grandfather.
