Brittle needles doesn't sound good. You can scrape off a little bark from a couple branches and see if there is green underneath. If so, they are still alive. I would not think only three days without water would be enough to kill them unless they were very small.

Continue to water when the soil is dry and see if the foliage gets a little more pliable.
