Written Jul 23, 2013 1:15pm by Becky KleikampWe are on our third week of treatment. Britney is handling the radiation and chemotherapy quite well. She takes a daily nap as it makes her tired but otherwise is doing well. Again we would like to thank everyone for their endless support--- Also, the extra t-shirts we ordered for Britney's event came in and we are in the process of delivering them now! Thank you all for being so patient.
Written Jul 15, 2013 8:32pm by Becky KleikampBritney has been so strong throughout this whole ordeal! She impresses us so much everyday with her strength. This week will be Britney 's second week of radiation and chemo. Last Wednesday Britney had her first headache since her two brain surgeries. The Oncologist had us double up on her Dexamethazone which is for the swelling of the brain. The medicine increase did stop the headache. Britney has had no more seizures since they increased her Keppra a few weeks ago. We will meet with her Oncologist every Wednesday for awhile to make sure her meds are where they need to be. We will continue down this road together with the strength of family and friends. Thank you again for your support.

He said Britney's incisions look good and we can start radiation and chemotherapy today!!. We raced back home for an 11:15 appt. at DCH for Brits 1st round of radiation. She did very well. Radiation will be given in the am and chemotherapy will be given in the pm. Thank you again for all of the support we have been given~you all are truly blessings. We will meet with the Green Bay Oncologist on Wednesday to see if Britney is tolerating the treatment or if he needs to adjust it.
