I drank tons and tons and tons of water! The hospital gave me a 36 oz insulated cup and they had a water/ice machine just outside the room. DH filled that thing up for me like every ten minutes! I also drank the little cups of apple juice, and they let me "eat" broth... I couldn't get enough water though. And I even had IV fluids hydrating me, I just needed the cold and wetness on my mouth. My mouth got so dry!
