Hello Sherri
Yes, weight loss is normal. It is the cancer and the chemo that is causing the weight loss. Thank God he has a hearty appetite. If this continues, I would suggest telling his dr. He may need to have a feeding tube to give him the right amounts and calories of nutrition. Hang in there, this is just another bump in the road of this journey. May God give you the strength and peace you all need. Keep in touch.
