Prayer Request

There is sooo much I am dying to post with regards to Greek Summit and the amazing things we saw God do there. But, for now, we have an urgent prayer request. In fact, it seems as if every 5-minutes we’ve been standing in need of prayer…but, as I was reminded by a godly couple tonight, “to everything there is a season”.

I’ve been experiencing shoulder pain for the past year or so, doing PT, cortisone shots, etc. But to no avail. I had an MRI done yesterday and I went to get the results today.

It looked like a cyst in my shoulder, then they made me get an X-ray and it seems that in addition to the cyst in my shoulder, there is some sort of weird looking tumor in my humerus bone (the bicep part of my arm). It looked big (to us–but anything looks big to you when you’re the one being x-rayed!) on the x-ray and the doctor said it looks to be “scalloping and eating” away at my bone…So, I’m getting a 3 Phase full-body bone scan and CT scan on Monday.

The doctor was really quiet and just wasn’t sure what to say it was, while the nurse kept saying, “Holy Cow! Oh my GOSH!” I felt like smacking her with my one good arm!! :)

We are feeling pretty shaken up, yet know that God is good and that everything He does is good. W would just love prayer! We won’t know any results till Friday. Hopefully, it will be absolutely nothing, but we will keep y’all posted!

Please be praying for the scans on Monday to come back perfectly normal!!

  1. Hey Kitty! Oh my gosh! I’ll definitely be praying for you! I know you’ve got a lot going on but if you could shoot me an email update whenever you get new knews that would be great! Be encourage that people will be praying for you on the other side of the world. :o)

  2. Kitty – I am praying for you right now and will continue to do so. Our God is Healer, rest in that. This morning I read “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.” John 14:1 You are loved sweet girl!

  3. hey you two, my name is melody and i’m a good friend of brandon and ansley hammond. i saw a recent facebook status for ansley saying she was praying for you two and decided to check out your site. i will pray too. ;o) i understand the uncertainty and challenges of an unexpected health issue. the last six weeks for me have been filled with mri’s, ct scans, x-rays, ultrasounds and doctor visits related to a large fibroid growth in my lower abdomen area. i am very much with you in the up and downs of emotions and how does God want me to trust Him in the midst of it all. this is what i do know: He is good. He is in control. He is loving. He is your Father. and He will take care of you both. i’m also learning that the fierce resistance i have of wanting to be in control and control things has got to come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, in all things, my health included. every day is a new day to surrender and submit to God’s plan for my life in this area and many more. may the Father’s peace and great love fill your hearts today. you are loved and cared for greatly. see the hope in the new sunshine of today you two.
