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".

Well the new attending just came in and advised us that they are going to give him another bag of platelets and then take him down for an LP later this afternoon. He will also be getting whole blood this evening when he returns from downstairs. Please keep him in your prayers especially throughout the day because he is getting pretty anxious about having to have the LP. We have talked with the nurse about giving him something before he goes down to calm his nerves. I know everything will be fine. God will see to that.
