Hi and welcome to the community though sorry to hear about your husband and I am not surprised about you being in shock. 

We have a lot of advice around Oesophageal (gullet) cancer that might help you understand some of what you will be going through with the chemotherapy and you might like to look at too cancer and you feelings.

Glad you found the strength to come here,post whenever as someone will always be here to listen.
