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.

Eric gets his answer to Prom

First off, Eric LOVES YooHoo!  So knowing this Sami filled this huge tote full of YooHoo and asked if I would help her answer Eric to Prom.  I knew that where she was out of town with her family, he would not expect to get an answer this week.  Well... he does not realize how good I am at keeping a secret. 
The problem is he has either been at work or close by me.  So today, Eric was working and I was hoping to keep him busy while I set this up.  I was in front of the theater, on the phone and I look out the window and there is Eric looking into the car.  I thought the surprise was blown.  After I got off the phone, I was making casual conversation with Eric and realized that he did not pay attention to the back seat and was oblivious to what was going on. 
While he was in the office, I hauled the very heavy tote upstairs to the projection booth and with some help from Jessica, set this up.  I also closed the door a little so when he walked toward the booth, he would not see the display.  He opened the door and was shocked!  I had already left the theater and got the phone call from him!  He was in Heaven with all the YooHoo, not to mention he is set for Prom!  I told Eric I was going to break open all the packages and stack them and he said he was very relieved that I did not.  :)

  1. Wow! This is so exciting! I've been absent from the blogs for a while and I had no idea that Eric would be getting his call so soon. We are so excited for him! He's going to be an amazing missionary--what a cool thing. It just makes me cry to think of it.
