DALLAS (AP) – The Texas nurse infected with Ebola says in a statement that she’s “doing well,” and her hospital remains optimistic about her recovery.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas released a statement on Nina Pham’s behalf Tuesday as she is treated for Ebola that she contracted while caring for a Liberian man who died from the disease.

In the statement, TCU graduate Pham says she wants “to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers.”

Texas Health Resources CEO Barclay Berdan says the doctors and nurses involved with Pham’s treatment “remain hopeful” about her recovery.
