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.

Full moon ride at Sundance

We decided to show Aunt Theresa and Matthew just how much fun we have in Utah, by taking them for a ride on the ski lift at Sundance during the full moon!  It has become a tradition for Todd and myself and it was a lot of fun to take the Alaskans and Eric along for the adventure.

We are preparing to hop off the moving ski lift.  So Eric locked his leg into place and his plan was to grab the side and hop out the way.  Todd told him to just fall to the ground and let the chair go right over him.  When  the operators saw Eric's leg locked straight, they slowed the ride down for him.  So there were no injuries.  :)  It was a fun night, a little chilly, but fun!  Todd took some more pictures that I will post later.  Aunt Theresa took these pics with her phone.
