Mrs. Z, sending you hugs and prayers. Irinotecan may be an oldie but it's a goodie. Tough drug. Do watch out for the diarrhea and get some prescription strength help if needed.
My bible verse last night (great ap on the Ipad) was Ask and you shall receive, Seek and you shall find. I asked for a cure for us all...now, not next year.
Sending more hugs,
