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 did make it home yesterday afternoon and by the time we got unloaded, Eric settled he was ready for a short nap. But it was really good to have him awake for most of the evening. The nurse came by and showed me how to give IV fluids, so by the time we were done with everything it was 11:30 pm. He slept okay, even with me waking him every few hours to give him more pills. But so far we are doing okay! Hopefully I will be able to post a few pictures as the day goes on. Let's just hope we can keep him home for the 2 weeks!
