hi Ocibote, can´t help u with specific questions, but here is a very good thread from one of our members here who went through chemo, perhaps it can help:www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=2469594
I have small kids and almost every week, someone will have a runny nose, at the moment 2 sons and myself are getting over a flu. Perhaps, your husband can wear a breathing mask, and the kids can keep at a distance. Best to you and your hubby!
