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 are all set!

Eric Entertaining himself during the required lab draws.

Lacy (SHHS Trainer) and her mom gave Eric a blanket for his legs today.

We had to run up to the Riverton PMC for some blood workup today, so he is now officially sporting his cute little hospital wrist band.  (He hates those things).  But he will survive.  The offical time of his surgery is 10:30.  Eric has to be at the hospital to check in at 9:00am. 
Ty's mom, Kim sent over these links of Ty walking on his leg. 

This is pretty exciting!! 

Eric did ask Dr Randal if it would be okay to play kick ball with his new "Bionic" leg.  Dr Randal just laughed at him and told him he could do what ever he wants.

So Here we go on our new adventure!  I will keep you posted on our progress.

Lots of Love to all of you!  We have truly appreciated all your prayers!
