My mother was diagnosed with Stage IV GBC on May 15th. My entire family has been broad-sided by this as we had no hint of a problem until she had her gallbladder removed on the 8th. Mom still smokes, as you have mentioned your husband does as well. I am not sure of how to get them to stop all together, but I certainly know how to prevent her from smoking when I am present - I throw the cigarettes away. She cannot smoke what she does not have. She may be mad at me, but I know I am doing what is best for her.
