I apologize for my silence over the last several days. I’m sure most of you have seen in the news that a PIH clinician was infected with Ebola. I have been reeling from the news since it was announced, and struggling with how to continue writing this blog as my colleague fights the virus. I have no information to share that you won’t read in the news, so all I can honestly tell you is how I’m doing.
To assuage any worries about my well being: I am feeling completely healthy and my risk category has not changed. I am not the clinician who is infected, nor am I among the other Americans who were flown home due to possible exposure. I will try to write more soon, but for now please send all of your positive thoughts to my colleagues. Thank you all so much for your concern and support!
