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.
Eric has been feeling really good and ready to go out of his "cave". Last night he came with us as we previewed the movie Source Code, which he enjoyed. Then this morning the boys... (Jordan, London, Eric and Josh)
came and watched Hop this afternoon. They all said that is was really "Cute".
We just made it home and Eric was settling in having a afternoon snack... gotta get some weight back on! :) and Coach DeGraffinreid came by with his son to present Eric with his certificate of Achievement (to show he lettered in Basketball)
Can I just say how wonderful it is to have Eric feeling good, laughing, EATING and willing to get out and about. Life is good! :)
