    I-31 uptake and scan. Was in Moffit Cancer Center for 3 days in isolation. Remember the plastic covering the floors ,bathroom sink & the green and blue tiles. They placed two metal rails/plates on both sides of the bed to protect the medical staff from being exposed. I brought in lemon drops and had water and some soft drinks like gingerale. I slept thru the first two days but by the 3 was ready to get out of isolation and home. My salivary glands were tender and I was a little nausesus. To this day I cannot stand lemon.
