I know my father would get very confused and couldn't remember if his parents were alive (they passed 35 years ago), or where his wife was (they divorced 20 years ago). The next day he'd be sharp as a tack. When he knew he wasn't thinking right, he'd be quiet. I think he was trying to not share his confusion with me. He'd go through anger bits, brainstorming bits, quiet bits, talkative bits, etc. Just know that it seems to be all in the range of "normal."
Best wishes, and enjoy the time you have left with him, regardless of whether he speaks to you or not. My father passed in May of this year.
