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.

I got the report on Eric's blood counts yesterday and was very shocked.... They are staying up. I expected them to drop the last couple of days, but actually went up. I will take it! At this point it looks like we will be going back to the hospital on Wednesday, assuming that his counts stay up. In the mean time, he has been having a lot of fun with friends and was able to squeeze some school work in. All is well at our home! :)
