Water, water, everywhere

After my surgery, I was warned that I needed to make sure I remained hydrated. I then looked up the quantity I was supposed to be drinking and it was the same as the normal recommended amount for a regular person. I thought this was funny.

But I didn’t really have to worry about it. I was already drinking plenty of water (more than that required amount) so I haven’t had much of a problem with dehydration. I’m guessing that I had been so dehydrated while I was sick that once I started to absorb things again, I just automatically started drinking more.

Now I’m back to drinking a normal amount of water. I’m not guzzling; I’m just drinking. When I start to feel a little “dehydrated”, not necessarily thirsty, I just drink some more water and it hasn’t been a problem at all.
