I am sorry to hear the news about the passing of your mother.
Yes, sometimes CCA patients ,like your mommy and my sister-in-law, are not dying of CCA but the related side effects of the chemotherapy and/or the mets due to the CCA primary.
Amiodarone(Cordarone) is known for its serious side effects and limited safety margin.

Dearest TJ and Family. I am so very sorry to read this about your Mother. I know how hard this is right now but honestly in time the better memories will outweigh the bad. I know I went through a similar situation with Teddy. It qwill tqake time but it does resolve. My prayers and thoughts are going your way.
Letter from Heaven by Ruth Ann Mahaffey
To my dearest family some things I’d like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay,
I’m writing this from Heaven. Here I shall dwell with God above
Here, there’s no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy because I’m out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said “I welcome you,
It’s good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone,
As for your dearest family, they’ll be here later on.
God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you
And when you lie in bed at night, the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you . . in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
One thing is for certain though my life on earth is o’er
I’m closer to you now than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
Together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
When you’re walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind
I’m walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind
And when it’s time for you to go . . from that body to be free
Remember you’re not going . . you’re just coming here to me.April 24, 2012 at 3:42 pm #60142darlaParticipant
I am so sorry to hear of this. It is so sad to have lost her this way. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this trying time.
Take care and come back here to vent, or just for comfort, when you are ready.
Love & Hugs,

It is with great sadness and such a heavy heart that my mommy passed away. Losing her not to CC but to pulmonary toxicity due to a lethal combination of Amiodarone & chemo. Her cardiologist did NOT monitor her with x-rays or oxygen levels, as he should have. She had all of the side affects and was poo-pooed by both her oncologist and radiologist. We admitted her to the ER on Tuesday April 10th and we lost her Monday April 16th.
My heart is wrenched as I wrap my arms around this. I know that the cancer would have eventually consumed her but it would not have been last week.
Bless all of you for the support over the past two+ years.
