    Nina Pham's Facebook page, which has been taken down, included a photo with her dog. Dallas public information officer Sana Syed identified the dog as Bentley, a spaniel. Bentley appears to be a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

    Dallas nurse and Ebola patient Nina Pham is still in fair condition at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, officials there said Monday.

    Her condition has not changed since Friday, they said.

    Pham, who contracted Ebola after caring for patient Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, was flown to Maryland on Thursday to be treated at the taxpayer-funded hospital.

    Pham was listed in fair condition Friday after NIH staff assessed her following her transfer Thursday night from Dallas, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases' Laboratory of Immunoregulation.

    She had been listed in good condition in Dallas before her transfer, but Fauci said the change in status shouldn't be understood as Pham's condition worsening.

    "She's not deteriorating. I cannot tell you at this particular time why we have said fair, because of patient confidentiality, but she is quite stable now and resting comfortably," said Fauci.

    Last week Fauci said they fully intend to have Pham walk out of their hospital and will do everything they can to make sure that happens.
