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.

Ready to start #13

We did not need to be here at PMC until 2:00-3:00. Eric had an echo cardio gram. Which shows his heart stronger this time, than last test.... Interesting. We are getting his body ready for the next round of Doxiorubican. The drip will be finished Thursday night, but then they will need to give Eric another blood transfusion, which takes 4 hours to infuse. So at this point we are planning on letting the transfusion drip into the night and by Friday morning we should have completed #13 and ready to go home for one week!!!
I have to say that we have some of the greatest nurses and they have come to deal with Eric's humor... Today as Annie was giving Eric the check up... like listening to his lungs, heart etc. She said "can I look into your eyes?" Eric said "Sure but don't get lost." She was taken back, then just started to laugh. Gotta love him!
