Hi my name is Brandy and my fiance is Donald Fitzgerald. As most of you know Donald has been dubbed "Superman" and for good reason. Donald was diagnosed with ALL (leukemia) when he was 13 years old and relapsed when he was 18. He was cured of this cancer and has gone almost 13 years cancer free. During this time, he has undergone 2 hip replacements and a partial shoulder replacement due to the high doses of steroids he had to take. Then, on March 24th 2011, 3 months after his 32nd birthday, we got the devastating news that the cancer had come back. We are now at UMC about to undergo the long process of Chemo once again. He will have to stay in the hospital for a minimum of 30 days for the initial treatment. He is strong and will beat this once again but we need everyone's prayers. God is in control and there is nothing out of his hands. As someone posted once on facebook "The deals not done until God's done dealing".

Chemo: Day 5
Donald was able to sleep a little better last night. He is in a pretty good mood this morning and appears to be more rested. They are prepping him for a bag of platelets and then hopefully we will be on our way down for the LP. He will be glad to get that out of the way. He feels much better after getting 2 bags of blood last night and think that played a large part in him being able to rest. Praying God allows him to stay calm and make it through the LP without complications. Thank you Lord for another good day.
