Mom has lung cancer... what should I expect?

My mom was just dx with early stages of lung cancer in both lungs. The largest is a 1/2 inch. She is not having any symptoms yet. She currently lives alone. I am planning on having her move in with me. My question is how long before she will need care 24/7? I know everyone is different but I am looking for some examples of how others progressed in this disease.....I am also wondering how long is one bedridden with lung cancer before they pass on average. any info on this would be greatly appreciated. I plan on taking care of her til the end.
