Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am a licensed veterinarian and would be happy to answer your questions.
Is she vomiting blood? And her stools are black and tarry?
How long has this been going on?
Is she on any medications?
yes going on for three months, no meds
yes she is vomiting blood through the sick, her stools are black and tarry, no meds
It sounds as if she may be experiencing gastric ulcers, which can occur as gastric acid builds up in the stomach due to the kidney failure.
There are meds to help that your vet can prescribe.

What I would suggest is to have your vet at least examine her and recheck her kidney values.
