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 finally cleared the metho out of his system this morning. So we did not start the TPN (IV Nutrition). But the Home care nurse is coming tonight to help set everything up. When we made it home, Eric was greeted to a nice surprise! Erin Clawson, an awesome neighbor, she went around to the neighbors in the this area and had them write a message to Eric on a heart. Have I ever mentioned that we have the most amazing friends? Well we do. It made his day!
