Judy’s now into her 5th week of Chemotherapy treatment, and while things aren’t great side-effect-wise, we know it could be worse. The pattern is 2 weeks on, 1 week off, and let’s just say that 3rd week is a godsend.
If you’re curious as to the actual treatment she’s receiving, it’s a combination of 2 therapies—Cisplatin and Gemzar. And in true Judy fashion, she’s handling it like a boss! In fact, shortly after starting treatment she got together with some close friends and family and had a kind of hair sheering ceremony—as one of the side-effects of Cisplatin specifically is temporary hair loss.
She’s spending most of her time resting and recuperating at home with Brian in Berkeley these days, enjoying the good days and riding out the bad.
