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".

Still hanging in there.
Donald was able to get a little sleep this morning after they got the air working again. He didn't get up until 9 this morning. We have had a few visitors this morning which always helps keep his spirits up. We took another trip downstairs and got something from the cafeteria for breakfast. Had to try and find some milk because they haven't re-stocked the fridge on our floor yet. Donald is a BIG milk drinker. He probably drinks a gallon a day. He is now eating lunch and gonna try to take a short nap. He is a little drained from all of the activities last night and this morning but it's really good for him to keep moving around. It helps keep his strength up. He is doing so well. I am so proud of him for being so strong and courageous. I know he will get better. Praying for another wonderful day and giving God all the glory.
