Mom with pc, liver and bile duct cancer

My mom was diagnosed with PC, Liver and Bile Duct Cancer in June 2013. She is now in a rehab. The oncologist wants her to get stronger before starting chemo again. She had one treatment and ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. I honestly do not think she will get strong enough to continue chemo. She is 72 and not in great health when this nightmare began for her....us. She had a colonectomy two years ago due to colitis and diverticulitis. She was an active working woman at 68 weighing a healthy 150 pounds. Due to the colitis she dropped down to 67 pounds when the Doctors decided to do the colonectomy. She was doing ok. Gaining weight and able to take care of herself for the most part. Now this. She has been starting to vomit on a regular basis. Blaming the food in the rehab. Not eating a lot. Even when I bring her food. She too is always tired, sleeping A LOT. I am taking the advice of many other people and trying to enjoy the time that is left when I am with her. But when I am home, I feel horrible.
