Nina Pham. I hope you are doing well. How terrifying it must be to begin showing symptoms of Ebola--then to be told you have Ebola-then to be placed in an isolation unit. It is traumatic to say the least.

Any hospital stay sucks even when you are not placed in isolation so that friends and family can visit you in a hospital room. Or even when just the coming and the going of doctors and nurses entering the room to check on you can be a distraction and a comfort. Even the chatter of the cleaning staff.

Pictures of you shown in isolation today are reassuring. You seem to be comfortable and upbeat. Yourself a calming presence to the anxiety in me and in the public at large that the word Ebola kicks in all of us.

Today at church for some reason you filled my thoughts. I wondered if you would have wanted to be at church in the comforting presence of the sacraments ... or, to at least be able to have a priest or Eucharistic minister bring you communion.

I thought of how alone and terrifying this experience must be for you (and for those who have to go through it).

I prayed that God's Mercy, His Love, and his Healing touch would fill you with his comforting health.

I also prayed that His Loving Mercy would touch Bentley who, too, must be so confused wondering what is happening and why is he in a cage and you so far away when he didn't do anything.

I am praying for you Nina Pham. And for your dog Bentley.

I am praying that you make it and that however your life might be changed (yours and Bentley's) as a result of this terrible and traumatic ordeal, that God will fill it with His Love, His Comfort, His Compassion, and His caring.
