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's metho levels are pretty high for this stage in the game. So we are thinking that maybe tomorrow we will be able to go home. He has not been his usual chipper shelf this time. He has been more nauseous and has had the hiccups a lot, which does not help with the nausea. He still has been a trooper and has not complained, but I miss my witty boy. There really is not a lot to report, but I will keep you posted on any new funny stories that may come our way. We will be back at the hospital on Monday for the next round. But at least we will get to go home for 2 nights. I did get an appointment at fit well for his prosthetic leg on Monday, so our day will start early.
