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".

Spinal Tap Update
Well they were unable to do the LP today due to an emergency coming in. They are going to schedule it for in the morning. They are now giving him his 2nd bag of whole blood and will probably give him more platelets in the morning before the LP. Donald is really tired tonight and needs to sleep but he is so anxious about the LP he can't rest for more than 10 or 15 minutes. Not to mention all of the nursing staff coming in every 2 hours or less. Aside from being tired and a little anxious he is still doing very well. Praying for rest for him tonight.
