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.

Hot coach

Today Eric's nurse was asking him if he was a basketball player because he is not fitting into the bed. He told her that he was and that he played for Salem hills She said "oh do you have that Hot coach... I mean he is really hot!!!". You should have seen Eric's face. He said "Coach DeGraffenried is my coach." and she said " Yes he is the HOT coach.". Lol Heidi you better watch out!

Eric is not going home today. His immune system is zero. Hopefully his blood will start to rebound so he can possibly go home tomorrow night.
