my mother is from overseas 62 yrs old and was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma after multiple sugical procedures, she developed multi organ complications. Thank God she is really strong and fighting. Iam her primary caregiver and was recently discharged home because she is not qualified to any hospice program because of her insurance. She is bed bound and requires PTT/INR blood test to determine her Coumadin (blood thinner) dose. I really don't know how to handle it because is she SOB even on slight exertion...Any suggestions? or help?

Sorry to hear about your mother. I don't have any answers for you but I know how it is to have a mother with cancer and to watch them go through it is something awful! The fact that she is strong and fighting is a good thing. I'm sure she is gald to have you by her side.
Take care and God bless..
