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.

Wednesday at PMC

Eric is doing really well today. He slept all day yesterday and will probably do the same today. As I mentioned before they are watching Eric to make sure his body is flushing out the Methotrexate. Yesterday his level was 2.67. It is now .76. He has to get it less than .1 before they will allow Eric to go home. So he is heading in the right direction. Irish, his nurse said that probably by Friday we will be ready to go home.

Eric was able to see all the action shots, taken by Todd the official team photographer, from the Payson state tournament game... Congratulations on your win, and the Salem Hills game. We were bummed to hear that it was the end of the road last night for the Skyhawks. The boys on the Salem Hills basketball team are amazing young men with a lot of talent. Not to mention the great coaching staff. We have been honored to be associated with you and call you friends.
