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.

#16 is cleared to go

Well Eric was able to clear his numbers on his heart.  I had the opportunity to speak with the tech and she told me that it is common to  see this and the good thing is if needed they can treat his heart with medication.  YEAH More drugs!  But it appears to rebounding on it's own. 
Home sweet home in room 4417.  Do you like my bed?...It is the one in the corner.
Eric is very proud of his mustache.  He won't let me take a picture of it, but he will draw a picture for you.

We are now pumping fluids in him to prepare his body for the chemo .
