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.

THE Homecoming

I can not even begin to explain how wonderful it has been to have Eric home and to learn of his experiences.  Here are a few pictures of the big event of the YEAR!

As much as these 3 young men wanted to stall their trip down the escalators, we spotted them and they had no choice but to come down. 

The cool thing is these 3 missionaries entered into the MTC together, flew to Sacramento together and came home together!

We were very humbled to have our fabulous friends and family come and spend the day with us.  (Aunt Lois and Uncle Blaine)

These two were so happy to see each other again.  They have many fun stories of their many adventures since they were in elementary school.  (Jace Spencer)

It was a great day and I was so proud of Eric and the job he did on his talk in sacrament, not to mention the hard work on his mission.  He has been working hard to get a job, register for school, apply for scholarships, start his work out regimen again and help mom out at the theater.  (Oh yeah and also going on many dates, but who cares about that?)
We spent this past weekend in Sacramento and met many of the wonderful people he had the opportunity to work with.  They are such a loving people who took such good care of Eric while he was there, that I will be forever grateful.
