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.

40 hour stop at home
We did make it home today around 1:00 pm. I kind of had to coax Eric into trying to coming home. I also had to take the bull by the horns to get his pain under control and explain to Eric why he is taking the different drugs. And with the help of a couple of Physician assistants, we mapped out a game plan. But we made it. I really think that he needed to come home for a little bit, not to mention to get a little fresh air. I am in the mode of trying to get him to eat anything. So when we stopped off at a convenient store for a Spirit, he asked for a Krispy Creme doughnut. Well so I had to get him 2. He still has not eaten them, but they are close by. :)
