Surprising but understandable. Typically you do keep the position until your last breath but I've always thought it a bad practice to maintain the position when you are clearly not capable of functioning at the necessary level.

On a personal note I'll miss having him as my Pope. He was in some ways perfect for the position and a much needed flavor of orthodoxy after JPII.
