Britney Kleikamp's Journal
Written Dec 30, 2013 6:53pm by Becky KleikampThere are no words to express how much we miss our sweet Britney....But we wanted to let everyone know how much we appreciate all the support we have been given throughout this terrible ordeal. You all shared your undying love for Britney, our family, Mark and his family. We want you all to know how much this helped carry us through Brits diagnosis and it gave us strength while caring for her. We can say with certainty that we did all we could do for Brit, and kept her comfortable and here as long as we could. I am very thankful for all the people in our lives and my daycare families who understood when I said that I needed to close my daycare to care for Britney. They all understood and I am very grateful for that. Also, thank you to all of our friends and family for organizing and having the fundraisers so that I could stop working to take care of Britney and yet keep paying the bills. Without these I don't know where we would be today. Britney was definitely a fighter and we are very proud to call her our daughter~FOREVER!! We also gained a new son(in-law) in Mark and we hope he will stick with us forever. We love him dearly as well as his family and hope they feel the same too. It is going to take us some time to figure out how we move on from here but with the support of family and friends we know we will heal, unfortunately we have been in these shoes before and know it doesn't happen overnight. So, please be patient with us as we try to figure out how we move on with out our girl:( Much love, Becky, Terry, Amanda, and Nick.

Britney was a true fighter and we are proud to have had the opportunity to call her our daughter. She was a very hard worker and one of the strongest people I know! She will be missed by many and will NEVER be forgotten. We love you Britney to the moon and back~forever. Mom, Dad, Amanda, Nick, Mark and Tyler.
Written Dec 15, 2013 6:08pm by Becky KleikampWe wanted to put a BIG thank you out there to all that attended Britney's fundraiser. Once again, without the support from family, friends, and the community we would not be where we are today. This takes a hugh burden off of our shoulders. It is hard to put into words what you all mean to us unless you are put in a situation like we are...(I would never wish this on my worst enemy though!!!) I really would liked to have been there to tell everyone thank you, but Britney is too fragile to leave and needs my constant attention. My place was with her and I hope everyone understands that. The rest of the family was there and they said they were very overwhelmed with all the support and love:) Thank you. I know many people have been asking for updates on Britney, but it is very hard to give updates when she is declining in health everyday. So, here is a little update, even though it is not good news.....and it is just "some" of what we deal with daily.... Britney is now totally bedridden and does not open her eyes anymore. She very seldom can communicate with one word answers and those are usually very confusing. I wake, or try to, to feed, medicate, and change her. There are times when I cannot wake her which means she does not get fed or her medicine. She does seem to be in much less pain then she was. She has also had a few fevers which we have been able to control so far. I think we have finally found a happy medium for her pain medication. Hospice RN's do come everyday to check her vitals. We are doing our very best to take care of our sweet Britney and love her to the moon and back!!! So, again, thank you all for everything you are all doing.....there is no way to thank everyone by name so please just know we are very greatful to everyone for everything they have done, or will continue to do for our family. Much love, The Kleikamps
