Quick Question in my head

Do all unstable nucleus decay and decay and decay until they become stable

Is this true
Yes, for any given time interval a particular unstable nucleus has a certain probability of decaying. Given enough time, it will eventually decay.
After it has decayed, it will be more stable, but usually still unstable. If it is unstable then it will eventually decay again.
After one or multiple decays, it will become Fe-56, which is stable. Fe-56 will not spontaneously decay.
