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".

Laughter is the best medicine
Overall Donald had a good day today. We had a few visitor's today and they really uplifted his spirits. We took a walk downstairs a short while ago and got a little exercise. I am so glad he is doing so well. He had a good 2 hour nap today and I laughed more in 30 minutes than I have all week. It was hilarious because he was talking to me and laughing in his sleep. I almost had tears rolling down my face I was laughing so hard. He swears he wasn't doing that and I must have been dreaming. Wish I could have caught it on tape. Mrs. Rachel came to visit tonight and had us laughing as well. It was very refreshing to see Donald laughing. Praying he keeps that smile on his face and continues to do well. No Chemo for 2 days so maybe he can get some rest. Thank you Lord for your many blessings and continue to watch over Donald.
