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.

Still doing well

Eric is doing well. He was able to get a few hours of sleep, but the tubing in his back to block any pain from his waist down was causing some discomfort. But then he does not have any padding in his back to cushion it. But for the most part he is doing well.
Last night after he ate his peaches and watermelon, he was still starving. Since he tolerated that, and was craving Red Robin, off I went to pick up a burger and fries, which he devoured.

He is awake and watching TV, but will just take it easy today. I hate to disappoint any possible visitors, but I am going to keep it to family. Friends will be welcome to come and visit when we make it home. We send our love to all! :)
