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.
They are actually ahead of schedule. Eric is is great spirits. We had a great talk on the way up to the hospital, and I am not going to lie, there were tears. We both feel very good and comforted about the decision, not to mention he is in good hands. I know that he will go on to lead a very productive and healthy life. I will keep you updated on the progress. Thank you for all your prayers, words of encouragement and love!
