about two days ago, my mom started vomitting of black brownish staff. She has been complaining about stomach pain for quite a while. I am very concerned about the color. It is dark black and sometimes the staff comes in chuncks, not just liquid form. I suspect it is blood. But where does it come from?

They recently found a blockage in the bile duct and will perform a percutanous bile drainage soon. She doesn't eat or drink anything. Could it be the tumor, or just stomach ulcer? What should we do in this situation?
