Should I swap my E420 for an E520/620 or just buy the 520/620 and keep both?

HI, I am new to DSLR photography , I have had a E420 for the last 6 months which I am having great fun using with varying results. I must admit the camera was bought on a whim and I really didnt investigate the specs much at the time. I am about to start a photography evening course so that i can get a better grasp of the basics as I am finding using my camera addictive. My problem is that I have MS and as a result do sometimes have quite shaky hands. I didn't know when i bought the camera about the image stabilisation feature (or lack of it) on the 420. I dont specialise in any one area of image taking at this point and am using the 2 kit lenses (14-42 & 40-150mm ) that came with my camera. I am thinking of getting the 25 mm pancake lens to make the camera lighter for general use, but am also considering whether the extra expense of getting a body with IS would be significantly beneficial. I would be grateful for any advice but please answer in not too techy language as i'm still learning lol. Sorry if this is a bit longwinded.
Charlotte
