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.

Today while we are waiting around, we decided to check out Eric's new foot. It was no small feat...hee hee excuse the pun... to take off his shoe. The foot even has toe nails. I told Eric he could even wear sandals. The outer part of the foot (that makes it look like a foot) can be taken off, but Eric didn't want to try that. I wanted to see the springs and see how the toe works. When his big toe bends it releases the knee so it will bend. Pretty fascinating.
Eric's level of metho is .14 so close. So they are going to retest him this afternoon. Hopefully he will get it to .10. I really like pretty much everyone here, but there is a Nurse Practitioner that is very very negative and has ticked me off before. Well he came this morning and told us there was no way he will make the clearance. Eric has been at this level before and made clearance, by the skin of his teeth, but he made it. I was wondering if he didn't like us or just snotty because he has to work on the weekends... but the nurse said that he is always like that. That is way to bad for him. Keep your fingers crossed so we can go home tonight!
Joke for the day... If frosty the snow man married a vampire, what would they name their child? Frost bite :)
