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.

We're back

Well I am learning that we are living moment by moment. We are back at Primary children's hospital. They were waiting for us and made Eric comfortable immediately. I am very grateful to Dr. Money and his willingness to learn with us and also for his honesty when it came to territory that he is not comfortable with. We are not sure how long we will be here, but it feels good to be in a place where they know what needs to be done. It does appear that his blood is ready to rebound and with the help of additional antibiotics, he will continue to get stronger.

Sounds like Salem hills triumphed over Uintah! Congradulations!
Just so everyone knows that the new design of this blog was done by McKell, my wonderful daughter in law. She took one look at my blog and said that she would "fix it". Thank heavens for family! :)
