I'm apparently socially inept; I didn't even introduce my wife and myself to you all. My name is Jimmy. Jerri is my wife. We live in Dallas, Texas.
I REALLY appreciate the encouraging words and the offers to talk. You all sound like very nice people. I will show Jerri how to use this site and do the email thing. She has a ton of questions.
You've given me new hope that we CAN beat this, and as we do then Jerri and I can follow your lead and help others. But we have a long, long way to go.
I still can't believe that just a little less than four weeks ago we were in an entirely different world where "normal" was so different. Now we have daily conversations with family and friends about our plans for pet scans, chemotherapy and radiation, and trying to deal with this. Talk about information overload.
Thank you all for your suggestions, encouragement, prayers, and resources.
We will definitely be talking to you all and hopefully may even get to meet some of you and put a face with the type.
