Thomas Eric Duncan's mother urged her son to "don't worry, pray," in a video message Thursday to her son, who's isolated in a Dallas hospital after he became the first person to be diagnosed with the Ebola virus in the U.S. "I love you. I pray for you to get well," Duncan's mother, Nowah, said in the message. "My whole thinking is on you."

Duncan's family can't see him while he's quarantined at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, but his mom said, "I know God will make a way for me to see you and you to see me. ... I hope the people will help you with medicine and God will bless you and God will bless the medicine for you."
