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.
