(OMAHA, Neb.) -- Dr. Rick Sacra, the American patient being treated for Ebola at the Nebraska Medical Center, continues to improve, the hospital says.
In a Monday press release, the hospital says that staff members are seeking ways to entertain Sacra while he remains in the Biocontainment Unit. Sacra's wife says that a chess board and a supply of books have been given to her husband. "Someone also brought in a Nerf hoop, which Rick discovered he might need a lot more practice with," Debbie Sacra said.
According to the release, Sacra still tires easily, but is, "becoming sharper [mentally] every day." Sacra has held conversations with his pastor from his hometown and a former colleague from Liberia.
Doctors say they "continue to be pleased" with Sacra's progress.
