“He’s so soft, Mommy. He likes me,” Bella says, smiling.

Murphy, a friendly brown and white dog, is stretched across Bella’s bed and is resting his head on her belly. Bella strokes Murphy’s fur as Murphy looks up at her with his big brown eyes. Bella’s mom has tears in her eyes. It is the first time Bella has smiled in hours.

The nurses beside Bella’s bed have given Bella a needle and she hasn’t even noticed. Murphy’s warm snuggles have her full attention.

Bella is a patient in the children’s emergency room (ER). An emergency room is a place in a hospital where people go when they need help from a nurse and a doctor right away. People going to the ER are called patients.
