Each hour we take a 60 second reading of the radioactivity coming from Adam, and it's this reading that will determine when he can leave the room, when he can leave the hospital for some outside air (I hesitate to call it 'fresh' - this is Central London), and when he can come home again. On entering the room Alison and I must don plastic apron, gloves and overshoes. We also take in a counter that measures the radiation levels to which we are exposed whilst in the room. On leaving we remove the protective items and place them in the yellow bin, close the protective door, and note down the time that we entered the room, and the counter reading on entry and exit. That's how it will be for the next 7 days or so.
Tomorrow Adam will undergo scans.
