Nebraska Medical Center reports that Dr. Rick Sacra continues to improve and had a good weekend. Dr. Sacra is being treated for the Ebola virus and remains in their biocontainment unit.
Staff members are trying to find new ways to keep him entertained. Dr. Sacra’s wife, Debbie says “They’ve brought in books and chess board so that has been helpful. Someone also brought in a Nerf hoop which Rick discovered he might need a lot more practice with.
Debbie reports that her husband still physically tires very easily but mentally he is becoming sharper every day. She reports he is holding long conversations with several people and he also spoke with his pastor back home in Holden, Mass.
Medical Center staff report they are pleased with his progress.
