Marc.....My heart is with you.  I am hoping for your Mom to be as comfortable as possible.  My husband expelled black bile also and from what I have seen on this board, it is common for the last stages of the disease.  It is all about keeping Mom comfortable.  I am thinking of you and wishing for strengths to surround you.
Many hugs coming your way,

Re: just a update on my mum

Marc,

I'm sure if your mom was asked, she would say you are her beloved son in whom she is well pleased. 

You and your mom will be in my thoughts and prayers.  Remember to take time to take care of the caregiver.(....that would be YOU!!)

Stay strong,
Hugs,
Pam

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: just a update on my mum

Marc,

You are a good son, I pray for your mother, she must be made of some pretty strong stuff and, remember, you have that strength in you, too.
