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.

Almost There

Eric's level is at .15....so close. They will retest it at 3:00 to see if his level is .10 or lower. If it is .11 they will not let him go till morning after they retest it. So we may luck out and get to come home tonight!
Yesterday was a very full day with audio testing and doctors and doctors and more doctors coming in. I learned a lot though.
Eric had a visitor, Adam Sainsbury and his mom came to visit. I had never met Adam, but I have heard Eric talk about him. What a great friend. He brought a balloon to help cheer up Eric's room. Adam and his family are going on a cruise the end of this month, we are so jealous. I was able to see cute little Lizzie Jane after her appointment with the cardiologist, and the other night I ran into Todd's family from Pocatello. Man this is a small world. It is always nice to run into friendly faces as your wondering the halls. :)
Yesterday as I opened the door to Eric's room to get the nurse, a little girl with a mask on was riding a bike down the hall. Her mom was getting quite the work out trying to stay up with her pushing her IV tree. The nurses were telling us that it is a good sign when she is racing up the hallways on the bike because she is starting to feel better. Eric asked if they had a bigger bike for him.
