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.

All Systems Go!

We just got the all clear sign.  The hot spots on his back is from an old injury.  We could have told them that... Oh wait we did.  :)  So I will find out later today when he will need to be at the hospital on Monday.  I am not sure if they will limit the size of visitors in one group.  They did say that the hospital is very cautious this time of year.  So Monday night we will have a better idea on the rules and flow of things.

Eric is to start Chemo on Monday afternoon... did I mention that he had Chemo postposed because he had a date to the Jazz game (lower bowl tickets) on Saturday night and of course you can't miss the Superbowl party!

As hard as it is to think about putting your child through Chemothearpy, and to watch him suffer, I want him to regain his health and strength.  He is an amazing young man with so much potential, yes I am a very proud mom.  But he will overcome this and be an example to others.  Please keep him in your prayers and we will keep you posted on his recovery.
