Father Christmas



Miracles do exist. My brother is one of them. This is his story. My brother, Ruben Pereyra, contracted the flesh eating bacteria through a simple cut on his left hand on Father's Day 2012 in Juneau, Alaska. The cut was minor, even the doctors at the emergency room did not think anything of it. He went 3 times to the emergency room. On his 3rd visit he was very sick, and the doctor in Juneau made the decision to fly him to Harbor View Medical Center in Seattle, WA. The doctors in Seattle determined that he had contracted an extremely aggressive form of the flesh-eating bacteria (Necrotizing Fasciitis). He was one day from losing his life. After weeks of many surgeries and painful procedures, and with the fantastic work of the doctors and nurses at the Harbor View Medical Center my brother's life was saved and his arm did not have to be amputated. He continues his stay at the hospital where he is going through skin graft surgeries and where future surgeries will also be needed for the reconstruction of his arm and hand. We have family and friends, as well as people that do not know him, praying for his recovery. We have strong faith and know that the power of prayer is awesome. He will need extensive rehabilitation after he is discharged by the hospital, he will be far away from home, and he will not be able to work. For those of you that know my brother you will agree with me that he is unselfish, cheerful, giving, trustworthy, and a very loving person. I am so grateful to have a brother like him. He and his family are faced with many weeks, if not months, away from home. Please keep my brother Ruben in your prayers.
