 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Can anyone help me figure out how to do this.
I have an arduino compatible9DOF board with a built in microprocessor.  It samples data from its gyro,accelerometer,and compass...it then runs calculations and outputs adjusted data through serial USB. I need to add two more sensor values to the stream and send it to processing via the USB serial cable.  Is it possible to connect the 9dof board to an arduino to receive the data, have the arduino sample the data from the two additional sensors, add them to the serial data stream and then serial print them so that my pc can get them using processing?
With only one serial port I don't see how to do it.  I need the unit to be smaller than a arduino mega....
Any ideas...

SoftwareSerial Library will allow you to use two or more serial devices: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/SoftwareSerial
