Missionary's son says mom recuperating after Ebola

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The son of missionary Nancy Writebol says his mother is still recuperating after surviving Ebola.

Jeremy Writebol said Thursday he is back home in Wichita after spending two weeks at an Atlanta hospital where his mother was in isolation.

He left Atlanta just hours before she was discharged on Tuesday and says he hasn't had a chance to give her a hug yet. She is at an undisclosed location with his father.

He says it's been a very traumatic experience in the lives of his parents, who are trying to consider their next steps and what they hope to do in the future.

Writebol said his parents talk constantly about the need to pray and do everything possible to help people Ebola-stricken parts of Africa.
