My Kryptonite

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".

Quiet Day

Donald has been resting for the most part today. His fever as far as we can tell has gone and his chest is beginning to look better. He has been feeling a little nauseated today but with a little help from our friend phenergan he has been able to tolerate it. The tagged WBC scan came back showing absolutely nothing new. I guess that is a good thing. Praying he will continue healing and be able to go home soon. We are still not sure what is going to happen next. Guess we will find out soon enough. Planning to ask the doctor next time he comes around.
