    Somewhere on the WWW I read that when a person stands next to someone who
    has had an average dose of RAI, it’s like they’re standing in the sun for
    a day or something like that. It’s the same amount of radiation as going
    to the beach. This website (I wish I could remember which on it was) said
    that it’s highly unlikely that anyone could be harmed by it. However, with
    small children, especially babies, they’re more sensitive to it and could
    develop thyroid problems because of it. Erring on the side of caution is
    probably the best, unfortunately. I hope your RAI makes you feel great.
    Then it will be worth it. :-) I would gladly put up with just about
    anything if it will help me feel better than I do right now… Hang in there.
