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.
Our favorite student nurse was on duty and what better experience for her than to have her give Eric his daily shot. Alisha Spencer did not hesitate at all to stick Eric. Alisha is Jace's sister. It is pretty nice to have familiar faces here.
Good thing he only gets that shot once a day, and considering that Alisha is just learning, it did not hurt to bad. :) We are just kidding, the syringe was filled with Gatorade. She was just a trooper to play along.
