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 and President and Sister Lewis

I received a letter from President Lewis along with this picture.
This was taken right before the major accident with the AP's.  :)  I spoke with Sister Nielsen yesterday and she will be staying in close contact with Eric as he continues with his scan and check ups.  She was trying to reassure me that he was well and happy.  I appreciated the reassurance, but I knew that he was doing great.  She also said that he is already very busy. 
Eric is now in Florin California, which is just a few minutes south of Sacramento.  There is so much excitement with the rules changing on when young men and women can now go on missions.  Sister Nielsen said that every mission President is begging for missionaries. It sounds like there will be a large number of new missionaires heading into the mission field.
