Is he on steroids? I know they can control swelling and lessen confusion.

Well that sounds familiar. My mum had breast cancer (which spead to her brain) and was not honest about her prognosis. When we realised things were much worse than she was letting on, her attitude made it impossible to have an honest discussion and them at the end she was too confused anyway. You have my sympathy its so hard to know how to deal with it.

That was something I didn't have to worry about as it was a long time ago so my first child, at that time, was a toddler. I would say its probably best to hold off telling the kids until you feel its either obvious or imminent.

Also the end when it came for my mother was very quick and peaceful although obviously the confusion was distressing for us.
