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".

More Good News
Donald has been taken off all IV fluids and antibiotics. Being home for Easter is looking more promising everyday. Donald took a good nap this evening and then we walked 3 laps. He is feeling pretty good considering he had Chemo this morning. Looking forward to going back home. Sleep will be the first order of business when we get home. Might sleep for days! LOL!!! Don and Pat brought the kids by today and we went down to the lobby to visit with them for a bit. We miss them so much. They are getting excited about Donald coming home. No one is more excited than Donald though. :)
