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.

home ward bound

Eric has officially cleared the metho so we get to go home today....do laundry, repack and we will be heading back here on Monday! YEAH!! (I am being totally sarcastic). This treatment has been a little weird. He has been pretty sick all week long. Let's hope next week is better. But the good news is that he sucked on Mentos the whole time, no ice, and no mouth sores. Our friend, Jacob, next door was starting a chemo treatment and got bad mouth sores last time so we passed on the mentos to him. Hopefully it will work for him also.
Eric had a CT scan on Thursday and his chest is still CLEAR!!! Great news.
