How old does a child have to be in order to not fall under the category of 'small shildren' or 'tiny children'?
I can't seem to find any info on the procedure beyond those terms. What I'm looking for is an answer to whether our 12yod daughter will have to go away while I'm home decontaminating after the treatment or if she is old enough to be within the (relatively) safe group. My wife thinks that it means all children, which is fine, but I keep seeing references to 'tiny children' on the net and I just want to know if we're being overly cautious here.
I love science and I know enough to not fear the term 'radioactive', nor indeed this whole procedure or its affects on me. If I could just get an answer to this I think my family would be a lot more calm about the whole thing.
Any advice would be extremely helpful!
