He has gone up to Hopkins 5 days out of the last 7 for his clinical trial drug injection. This drug is supposed to decrease his resistance to Irinotecan, a proven colon cancer chemotherapy drug. Tomorrow he gets an infusion of Irinotecan and as long as his blood counts stay up, he will get another infusion the following Monday too. I am anxious for him to get back on tumor fighting meds as soon as possible.
