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 almost made it
Well we almost made the cut. He was .11. So we get to stay the night. All the doctors and nurses were pretty bummed for us. But because this is the first time with methotrexate and the seriousness of the chemical, we can't take the chance on his health. As much as I want to go home, I am not willing to take the chance with any possible complications. So we will plan on going home tomorrow morning. :).
