Quarantine!

Two nights ago I was told that a case of gastroenteritis was detected in the ward, so I had to be extra-careful when leaving my room. (I already put on a mask and gloves whenever I go outside and I wash my hands religiously—the benefits of neutropenia—so I was covered.)

Last night, I commented to my nurse that it seemed pretty slow out there, and she said it was because of the gastro; while some people are being discharged as usual, no new patients are being admitted.

Today, I was handed a letter sent out by the hospital's chief of Infection Prevention and Control. As of now, no visitors aside from immediate family are allowed in the ward. I was looking forward to some visits over the next week, but it looks like they'll have to wait.
