que l'eau

Does this mean:
"only water", or
"not even water"?
Going for a blood test and before it can't eat, but not sure about drinking - she said "que l'eau."

Re: que l'eau

It means "Only water"...Que (only in this context) l' (de) eau (water)you would help by giving the whole phrase.


Que moi....Only me

Il n'y avait que moi dans la voiture.....There was only me in the car....

Pat, it does mean that you should drink only water and nothing else, prior to the test. Good luck.

nil by mouth except water. even sall quantities of food, sugar etc can affect the results (dependiing on what is being assayed)

To add a bit, the expression à jeun means no solids or liquids, also usually before a medical test.
Ticking over, just about.

What Wooly said, as the jeun in petit de'jeun'er means break 'fast'.

Hope your tests were OK.
