Older cat going downhill suddenly with illness?

wobbly than usual. The vet did a test of the fluid (this is slowly poisoning her body!) and we knew it wouldn't be good news. Charlie has cancerous lump & I think an operation would not be best thing for her (unless anyone has experience of this and knows better?) At the moment she can slowly get to her litter tray, and she's also eating a little and drinking. I hug her a lot and she still purrs...but has anyone had this happen to their cat and what is the next stage likely to be? I wouldn't want her to get stressed if she can't get to the litter tray on time or she starts being sick...would it be better to put her to sleep before it gets to that stage, or only WHEN it gets worse for her...oh crikey, this is horrible, so please, any advice from anyone would be most appreciated....
