One of the nurses who contracted Ebola while treating a patient at a Texas hospital is speaking to the public.   A YouTube video recorded from  Nina Pham’s hospital bed has just been posted.

In the video Pham’s doctor asks if there is anything that she needs.  That is when Nina starts crying.   Dr. Gary Weinstein says, “Happy tears are OK. Otherwise, no tears.  No crying.  It is not allowed.”

Nina says, “I love you guys.”

Weinstein responds, “We love you Nina.”

Texas Health Resources writes on their YouTube account, “Before Nina Pham departed Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas for the National Institute of Health’s Clinical Center earlier today, she was visited by her treating physician, Dr. Gary Weinstein, who recorded his conversation with her before she was discharged. Ms. Pham asked that we share the video.”
