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".

An even better day
Donald has had a very good day today. He slept most of the night last night and didn't get up until 10 this morning. He is well rested (as rested as he can be anyway). His labs look good today and he hasn't had to have any blood or platelets. It has been kind of a lazy day today. He will get more Chemo in the morning. He is almost done with the first protocol and then we will be working on getting out of here and going home for a little while.
