    Hello Tabstar,

     

    Welcome to the Marie Curie community. Have you been able to discuss your concerns about fluid intake with the person’s GP or a nurse involved in their care? If you are not sure who you could talk to now over the weekend, we have information on accessing out of hours care here - https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/terminal-illness/care-needs/out-of-hours-care

     

    While we cannot give medical advice, we do have registered nurses here on the Support Line who you could discuss your concerns with. Our Information and Support Nurses are available between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday on Freephone 0800 090 2309 - https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line

     

    Take care,

     

    Clare - Marie Curie Support Line Team.
