Topic: Intro from Canada - My 47 yr old wife Tammy

My name is Ron Neumann [RonN] and this is my third attempt at writing this introduction for my wife, Tammy.  Like many others I have been spending time reading this site, but not contributing.  I have been lurking on the site for the past 7 months or so.  It feels good to finally jump in.

I apologize for the length of this post in advance

Re: Intro from Canada - My 47 yr old wife Tammy

Ron,

Thanks for posting.  You represent a large number of people,  just reading but not participating.  We realize that putting your personal life out for any one to read can be a little uncomfortable - but thank you so much. 

It helps us all when we can connect with some one else and since Cholangio varies so much, the more we know and the more people who participate, the better armed we are to fight.  Every piece of information is valuable, when there are so few of us.

Please tell Tammy we will be thinking about her.

Please put your blog on the family blog area, so we can all keep updated.  If you need help email rick@cholangiocarcinoma.org

Thanks so much,

Stacie

Welcome, Ron - Best of luck to you and your wife, it sounds like your wife is doing pretty well and you all have great attitudes - I hope your good fortune continues! (Funny to tell someone it's good fortune to have cc, but I hope you know what I mean!)

Hi Ron ......Just wanted to welcome you and your wife and say your 100% correct about being hopeful and maintaining that positive attitude.  I have had my ups and downs but this site has a way of keeping on track.  Just knowing your chatting with others who really understand the full impact of this disease helps tremendously and the words of support and encouragement.  Plus we are one big pool of resources and are continually researching for something new.
God Bless you Both!

Re: Intro from Canada - My 47 yr old wife Tammy

Thank you Stacie, Joyce & Jeff.  I already feel like part of the family.  I strongly suggest that any one else who has not introduced themselves do so... 

I managed to get myself into trouble with my posting.  I know my wife is only 46, but somehow I managed to put down that she was currently 47, (which is my age).  I thought I was so careful with the details.  I also can't edit the title so I am stuck with this....  Oh well.

Ron
