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.

Happy 19th Birthday to Eric

Okay you have heard that Chemo does some really weird things to your body, well it has totally messed Eric up.  He is no longer NORMAL!  He used to always ask for an apple pie for his "Birthday Cake".  Well when I asked him if that is what he wanted this year, he said NO!....WHAT???  He wanted a vegetable tray!  We could not have a birthday dinner without cake or dessert, so McKell got her delayed birthday cake instead (it's is perfectly okay to celebrate your birthday for 2 months... I think!)

Singing very off Key... :) to each other

Making a wish


Macklyn even loves celery sticks, something is definitely wrong with this picture.
Only 17 more days are left before he enters the MTC at 1:10 pm... but who is counting?  NOT ME!

Big difference from last year!

I am so glad the chemo killed the cancer cells, but sad that sugar now tastes bitter to Eric.  I can not understand living without sugar.
