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.

Blood tests are good!

We just got the word on Eric's blood. His ANC was 1000!!!!!!!! We will report to the hospital at 9:00 am tomorrow. His heart still needs to clear it's strength test, but we both feel really good about that.
Eric's mustache is coming in pretty good,...good as it looks like a dirt smudge. It is funny that his "tache" grows faster than the hair on his head. Yesterday he needed advice from Uncle Tim about how to care for his "Tache"...does he get a comb or what. Uncle Tim's advice was to get some mustache wax. Eric is hoping that he has the same gene's as Uncle Tim. He really wants to grow a thick head of hair and keep it. :) Time will tell.

More news to come from Primary's tomorrow. YEAH!! We will get the last dose of doxirubican behind us and sprint to the finish line with 2 more doses of Methotrexate.
