Hmmm I wonder if the explanation is that as fluid from the rest of her body was sequestering in her lungs (pulmonary edema), she felt thirsty and drank more. I'd guess that she was drinking to replace the fluid, not building fluid up through drinking. In that case, the thirst would be an early sign of sorts.
