My family and I would like to ask all of you to add another family member to your prayer lists. We just found out that our Uncle Howie (our mom's brother) has a malignant brain tumor. He starts radiation and chemotherapy this Thursday. Please pray for strength and comfort for him and his family!

I'm so sorry about being so far behind on this! Here are a couple of updates!
1.) Josh had a scan done on Thursday. On Friday they gave him a CD with the results but didn't discuss it with him. I guess he's just supposed to take it with him to CA and they're supposed to tell him about it. He looked at the info on the CD and from what he can get from the "DR. Language" is that there has been a decrease in the size of the tumors and an increase in necrosis. From what I understand an increase in necrosis is good because it means that the tumors are decaying. I hope I'm getting all this right. So PRAISE THE LORD, it sounds like things are working! As long as his blood count is good, he will leave Monday for CA. He's going to drive to Phx. Monday afternoon, stay at Brett's and then the two of them will drive to CA Tuesday morning and hopefully be back on Wed. Please pray that things will continue to go well and that he will have a safe trip to CA and back!
2.) Jackson Joshua Liam Crowley was born on May 8, 2008! (Three days before Mother's Day!) He was 8lbs. 2 oz and 19in long! Josh and Gilma (Josh's mother-in-law) were his first visitors. Jackson got to meet his uncle within the first hour of being born! Some people are saying I'm crazy for giving him two middle names,(especially my husband and Josh) but there is a good reason behind it! Of course the first part is after Josh, but Liam is a name that Josh had always wanted to name one of his boys and he never got to. So in honor of Josh I decided to use both names. I think it sounds like a very strong name and he can always use the initials when he has to write it! I've posted a picture of Josh with Jackson and as soon as I get more I will post them also.
3.) Our mom won the contest for Sierra Vista's Greatest Mom! We would like to thank all of you for your votes and your support! We couldn't have done it without all of your help! She had 80 votes! The next person under her only had 37, so the contest wasn't even close! When we told her about it, she of course cried and said she didn't deserve it! Her first bouquet was delivered on Mother's Day and she's supposed to get one every month until April of 2009! When they delivered them, they also sent one to me for nominating her!
Ok well I hope this catches everybody up and I hope I've found all the mistakes! You'll have to excuse me while I'm getting used to the sleepless nights again! When I re-read this I found several mistakes so I'm sure there's more that I didn't catch! Please continue to pray for Josh and the rest of our family! We are so thankful for the good results and we're praying it continues to go well!

Hi! I've emailed several people, but I know that I don't have the email addresses of everyone who checks this blog. I would like to ask all of you for your help to make this Mother's Day very special for our mom! One of our local florists (Bloom Country) is having a Mother's Day Contest and I have submitted Mom as one of the nominees. (SHHH! She doesn't know!) If she's the winner she will win free flowers for a year! I think that just might brighten up her year a little! All you have to do is go to the website, register, and then vote for Mom by clicking on our family picture that I submitted. (If you don't know which one it is, underneath our picture it says Submitted by Julie C. Added 05/02/2008) The website is www.bloomcountry.com I know all of you have wonderful mother's, but if you haven't entered your mom in this contest, I was wondering if you could help me and vote for our's! I entered her in another Mother's Day contest with KVOA 4 News but we haven't heard anything on that one yet and I'm afraid that one has so many entries that we have a better chance winning this one. If you could also pass this on to other friends and family members who would do this for me I would really appreciate it. The contest ends on May 10th so please get your vote in as soon as possible. Right now she's winning and I'd like to keep it that way! :)
I would like to thank all of you in advance for you help and I will let you know if/when she wins! I would also like to thank you again for all of your prayers and support over the last several months! This is such a difficult time for all of us and we couldn't make it without your prayers and your friendship! Please continue to pray for Josh and the rest of our family as we wait for God to heal Josh!
