free — almost

Seventy-two hours after swallowing two little white pills, I am allowed to come out of my self contained isolation room.  It wasn’t too bad, I didn’t get much metallic taste, still seem to have saliva ( although that may change over time ) and generally don’t feel too bad.  My stomach is still queasy, and right now, all I can keep down is a few eggs.  Fruit seems to be a problem at present.

Thanks to all who offered their well wishes and prayers. I seem to be weak as a puppy, but I hope that will change soon.

I am off for a short ride around the block, symbolic, but defiant.

I will be radioactive for up to 180 days, enough to set off alarms at airports and federal buildings, and two more days ( I will probably make it several weeks ), before I have contact with a child or pregnant woman.

Let us hope and pray there are no more chapters like this in my life.

    You are brave, Dad! We are proud of you and are praying for you!

  3. I pray this is the end of it, too, but all things considered, you didn’t have all that many reactions. And you’re so slim now. 🙂 I love you either way, slim or not as slim, but I hope to love you cancer-free for the rest of our lives!!
