Excel function that will return the number of rows in a merged cell

I have a merged cell that I reference using OFFSET.  The merged cell spans multiple rows.  The number of rows it spans is variable depending on the application.

Example in attached file.  I need to sum the values in column H based on the rows included in each time period defined by the corresponding merged cell in column A.

Is there a built in EXCEL function that will return the number of rows a merged cell spans?

If not, how can I do this?
