A little boy in bed, maybe he is sick or maybe he is lonely. On the bedside table is a plate of cookies and a glass of milk. Next to that is a stuffed toy. This is Billy. He sits straight up in bed, propped up by pillows. He’s been sick for two days. He hasn’t missed school because he is too young. More than anything, he wants to get out of bed and see his dog. A doctor’s valise is at the foot of the bed. Billy is waiting for someone to come to help him. He may all for help. His mother will come in and check his temperature and give him a kiss. The doctor will be back. Billy will feel better in a few days.
