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 will be here another day

Eric has not cleared the metho yet, so we will plan on going home tomorrow. He was pretty bummed about it, but what can you do? We are in the process of trying to gather all the money raised for the children's hospital, that Eric has been working on so that he can present it to the Telethon tomorrow. It is kinda tricky where we are stuck in the hospital. The plan at this point is to head over as soon as we get released from the hospital. But as I have learned,that plans change in an instant.
Yesterday was great because Eric was feeling good and restless. Aubri disconnected Eric from his IV's and we took a ride out to the patio and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. We were given strict orders to be back in 30 min. Well we ran back to the room because the 30 mins flew by to have Aubri hook him back up to the fluids and we took off again. Eric pushed his tree and I pushed him. There were a few moments that had us laughing pretty hard. When we came back, the doctor was leaving Eric's room asking where the patient was... We told him that we tried to escape and the Doctor said "Well we have very good security here." Okay, he can believe what he wants. :) But because we get the pleasure of staying here another day, we will be taking another trip to the patio.
Eric was sitting at the edge of his bed ...literally.. the last part of the game last night of Dallas vs Miami. He was pretty excited for Dallas on their WIN!! Not only their WIN, but their WIN in Miami! GO DALLAS
