All he does is sleep his days and nights away, find reasons not to eat, and refuse to take shampoos or showers, and get angry at me lately. He is on the third week after temodar. I think it is time for a vacation someplace warm. Does anyone have suggestions? I m open to all senseable vacation suggestions to keep his eyes open and perk his interest.
