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.

Great night

Can I just say how great it was to see "My Eric" come back? He had dinner last night...fruit loops, they took his oxygen mask away and his last IV was taken down about 1:00 am. Dr. Spraker came in to check on him and Eric made some wise crack, I said "As you can see he is still a smart...aleck." Dr Spraker said "Sorry Chemo doesn't fix that." :)

Did I mention it is good to have him back. He was awake a little more, and when he was awake, he was able to focus more and on top of all that, we have a good handle on the pain... so Elk Ridge here we come!
