Re: update tom

Merry Christmas and happy new year to you, too. Tom is a trooper. I wonder if he's getting steroids? That would account for the hunger and sleep issues. It might also contribute to the trembling. Ask his onc and maybe he can have it lowered if so.

Re: update tom

Dear Moontje and Tom, what a great Christmas gift to hear how well Tom is doing. I would also definitely call the ONC on Monday and tell him anything you need too. I was on Prednisone and steroids can make you eat and eat. Then at night I would just pop up and go on the computer as I couldn't sleep. In the meantime have a joyful Christmas and a healthier New Year!

Can't add much to this but that I agree with the others.  Merry Christmas to you and Tom, too.  Hoping for the best for you both in the coming year.
