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 still doing great

Eric had another hearing test.  There are some changes in his hearing, but nothing that should effect his normal everyday hearing.  It appears that his high frequency in his right ear is what is effected. 

I have to tell you another funny story.   When we were at Fit Well, we told Scott about how his leg just sweats really bad in the silicone sock he wears on his leg.  Apparently it takes around 3 months for his skin to adjust. Scott said that what some people do is.... now he was really hesitant to say...put a nursing pad at the end of their nub to absorb the moisture.  Which is actually perfect because of the shape.  Well Eric rubs his nub and says "I will need a C."  As if he would know what a C would feel like!!  Not to mention that the pads come in 1 size.... Gotta love him!
