unfortuantly, and with elderly people, they lose the weight in spite of eating.  There is not alot  you can do but talk to the docs about trying her on some supplements such a protien shakes.  even a shake from Mcdonalds woud help.  peanut butter and milk before bed time.  My mohter did this as well.  It is tough to watch,my heart goes out to you.  give her anything she wants to eat.  even if it is just a tablespoon, it is something.

You can try food supplements instead. Send my greeting to your mother.
