Thanks to all who replyed to me.  I just found out that the doctor is refering hospice to mom.  They will be here on monday.  I called them because i was curios about when and why they come to visit.  Well i wish i would have not done that.  The nurse that talked with me was sooooooo very nice and informative.... but she also so said things that i wasn't expecting to hear. (Not Her Fault) .She told me that hospice gets involved when the doc feels like there is nothing more they can do for the paitent. And when the paitent has 6 months or less left. OMG my heart drop to the floor.  I knew mom was going down hill quick but not that quick.  We just got the diagnos early im may.  But what i did learn is the Cholangiocarcinoma was not the factor here it is the non small cell lung cancer ( very aggresive ).  So i ask the nurse if she knew anything about NSCLC she said yes her mom died from it.  Mom is having very sharp pains in her left temple shooting to her ear so i ask her could the cancer have spread to her head or brain that fast and she informed me yes it can. I was so sick.  Thats why i couldn't understand that if cholangio was slow growing why mom was so sick.... now i know.  Here i thought i would have at least a year and maybe we still will.  I just want to ask everyone on here to pray for my loving mom and i will pray for each and everyone of you.  If anyone on here has experinced the NSCLC please respond and let me know what to expect and if this is painful. thanks to all

Hello, my name is Vicky and i am new to this website. My 63 year old mother was just diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma in april and she is going down hill really fast. I was hoping that some one on here could talk to me about this awful stuff. I am so mad that i am about to lose my mother. I say that because she is so sick and i feel like i am losing her but i hope i am wrong. She has lived with me for about 22 years and we are so close. I have 2 brothers that are younger than me but she is just closer to me don't get me wrong she loves her boys greatly. She also has non small cell lung cancer. This cancer is different from the liver cancer. I told the dr. how lucky can one be to have 2 cancers. I was just so mad at the world i had to be sarcastic. Well if anyone would like to talk to me please feel free to do so.I will greatly appreciate  it.
