my mother was diagnosed in january of this year with small cell . she took chemo, went into remission.in july they found a small spot, in which the stupid doctors said they would check again in 6 weeks. in 6 weeks they checked it again, and then it was in her liver and brain. she died 2 weeks after that second scan. we were in the process of radiating the brain, but the liver stopped functioning before we could get to it. don't worry, it will be quick for your mother, and if you have hospice involved it can be pain free, my prayers are with you.
