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.

There is so much to report right now, with the news from the farewell and setting apart etc etc etc. And I promise I will fill you in soon. I will tell you that Eric is so calm cool and collected about leaving. He is excited to start to learn the language and get to work. Everything is done that needs to be done, except to give him our final hugs and love. He had requested Swedish Pancakes for his final breakfast (I hate making Swedish Pancakes) but will do so with a smile. Daryl, McKell and Macklyn will be here to eat with us also. It will give Macklyn one last chance to climb on the "Uncle Eric Jungle gym" and Daryl to tease him one last time. It will be a fun morning.... More to come along with pictures.
