There was some speculation as two which American Ebola patient would arrive first in the U.S. for Ebola treatment at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Those speculations were put to rest when news broke yesterday evening that the hero doctor, Kent Brantly, would be arriving first and missionary Nancy Writebol would be transferred later.
Dr. Brantly shocked everyone by being able to walk into the hospital and he is surprisingly in good enough condition to help doctors diagnose and treat his condition. He was even able to take a shower by himself. According to family members, Kent Brantly asked to speak to his wife alone and then they had a call separated from each other by only a glass window. Amber Brantly, Kent’s wife, said she was very optimistic about her husband’s recovery.
We will post more information about how Dr. Brantly is doing as well as new information about the transfer of Nancy Writebol when that information becomes available so be sure to check back here for updates.
