Tom is mostly sleeping all day again. A nurse persuaded him to get out of bed and walk a short loop around the nurses' station. He did but got very light-headed and had to return to his room. So, the nurse asked him to sit in a chair for a while before lying in bed again. The nurse said he needs to get up and move every day even if it's just a little, to prevent pneumonia. He was able to sit up for about five minutes.
He's not vomiting anymore but that's probably because he's not eating - only a couple of small spoonsful of ice chips. It's very painful for him to swallow anything, even water or juice. He's lost about 8 lbs since last Friday. The mouth sores haven't improved but I don't think they can get any worse so I guess that's sort of good.
On a positive note, he checked his email a little while ago. He kept dozing off - it was so cute to watch. So don't think he's not reading your emails just because he's not responding. Keep them coming!
