On January 27, 2011 Eric Merkley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. An aggressive cancer that we hope and the doctors to this point seem confident that is contained to one spot on his leg. Prognosis is good. Treatments and recovery will be long and painful.

9 hours left
Eric is doing really good. We have 9 hours left of the first chemo treatment. There has only been a few moments where he got nauseous, one was more from the dang hiccups. He pretty much slept the whole day. We had the super bowl on, and he would watch it for a few minutes (like 2 to 3 minutes at a the most) before he would go back to sleep again. But that's okay. I am thinking today will be pretty much the same... lots of sleep.
