What to Say?
Mr DH has a progressive disease; in his case the worsening is usually very gradual. Since I live with him daily I don't see how bad he's gotten on a day-by-day basis. I have to think back to how he was on a specific date to recognize what I see everyday.
People frequently ask how he is and I don't know how to answer. Do I say "worse", or say, "He is OK" ? How do some of you answer the question to people who aren't particularily close to you?
