Never will I forsake you

Together for the Super Bowl

Dear Praying Friend,

Fulton, his daughter Addison, and I watched the Super Bowl in his room at the nursing home. Fulton is a huge New England Patriots fan. I decided to become a big fan with him. Fulton seemed lethargic, causing me to wonder what was it that makes him so tired? He fell asleep during the game so I woke him up to tell him the score.

I thought to myself, I might as well go home, he’ll never know the difference. Then I decided, I was going to stay, who knows, he might become alert again. I’m not going to leave. I love him too much to do that. I began dwelling on that thought, Fulton was tired but I wasn’t going to leave him, no matter. I believe even when he dozed, he knew I was there for him. I’m sure he understood. Our team lost but we hung together.

God refuses to leave us, no matter. Whether we think we are winning or losing, he is there. He’s always there. He said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5b

After the game was over, I said to Fulton, “Well, our team lost but it doesn’t change the truth, I love you, you are my son!” That put a big smile on his face which said, I’m glad you’re here dad. God will never leave us and that should leave a big smile on our faces too.

Your Friend,

Dawson

  1. So glad you chose to stay; what a blessing you would have missed out on…his smile, God’s gift to you.

  2. Dear Dawson,

    When I was a young girl, I used to listen to your radio shows at night at some of the hardest times while growing up and it gave me such comfort to see the love of God talked about with young people like me. Now, as an adult, over twenty years later, I am heartened you are still in the ministry. It is devastating to see any loved one go through a debilitating or degenerating illness. I have learned though, through many challenges of God’s ability to work through our endeavor in every challenge. In researching neurological disease over the past several years, I have learned a lot about some encouraging treatments for both traumatic brain injury and other neurological diseases ranging from developmental to degenerative. A common thread that they all share is metal accumulation, usually iron, but also copper, and zinc. Given your son’s origin of disease by trauma, I would venture that iron accumulation is at the root cause of his ongoing debilitation (due to hypoxia and expired heme from the injury as well as related metabolic impairment) and recommend natural iron chelation using natural nutraceutical agents: thiamine (vitamin B 1) at doses of 100 mg per day, at least, up to 300 mg per day; niacin (vitamin B 3) at doses of 350-450 mg per dose at least once every few days; pantothenic acid (vitamin B 5) at doses of 500 mg per dose every three days; pyridoxal-5-phosphate (vitamin B 6) daily at the highest level of safety which is approximately 100-150 mg per day; biotin (vitamin B 7) at doses of 8 mg per dose on days when vitamin B 5 is not administered with at least a 24-hour interval between the two nutrients though 48 hours may be best to avoid their competition at such high doses. I also recommend Folate (vitamin B 8 and not folic acid) at daily doses of 1.5 mg daily; vitamin E at doses of 300 IU daily; selenium (selenium citrate is best) at daily doses of 200 mcg as well as daily doses of potassium (potassium gluconate) at least .5g per day . Zinc should be administered at 30 mg once every few days. Magnesium is ideally administered at 250 mg at least once a week. Riboflavin (vitamin B 2) should be administered once a week at 100 mg. The following also need to be administered once a week: phosphatidylcholine (a B vitamin found in sunflower lecithin – powdered or liquid – which is a good form to use) at doses of at least 625-1250 mg phosphatidylcholine per dose once a week (I advise to slowly incrementally raise the dose over time); methyl cobalamin (not cyanocobalamin) at 2.5 mg per weekly dose; vitamin D at 2,000 IU per dose; vitamin K2 (MK-4) at 15-25 mg per weekly dose; iodine (organic seaweed sourced is suggested) at 800 mcg per weekly dose; vitamin A (retinol palmitate is suggested) at 5.5 mg per weekly dose. Conventional nutritional supplementation with a multivitamin orally or parenterally will not support him adequately since nutrients compete with each other for uptake and high doses are necessary to return an injured body to homeostasis. I recommend that you ask a kinesiologist or someone well versed in nutritional immunotherapy (suggested because industrial medical practitioners generally are not familiar with nutrition as a science or nutritional immunotherapy) to review this schematic if you would like confirmation of the applicability of these agents to Fulton’s traumatic brain injury. The schematic is intense due to the severity of his condition as well as his age and duration of illness. All recommended doses are assessed within the framework of NOAEL (no observable adverse effects), and scheduled according to effect against iron chelation and metabolic cofactor status. I would not just leave you with well wishes but with a tool to help your son recover from a sickness Christ died to defeat. With all best hopes for his recovery!
