Don't understand it.

My husband had his right kidney removed in 2008 because of RCC and has since had mets to the lungs, liver, spine, pelvic and hip bones, and most recently his brain. He is in the end stages of his battle and every day is a gift.
He has been showing signs of leaving us- not eating, sleeping more, confusion, cool skin, low blood pressure, etc. and hospice has been with us for nearly two months now. His nurse informed me the other day that we're getting close to his passing, however in the past couple days, he seems more alert, and his blood pressure is much better. Can anyone shed any light on why he seems to be rallying when the end is imminent?
