Storyboard Text

  • No mom, sorry. I just don't feel very well.
  • Honey, you have to clean up or someone will trip and get hurt. You don't want that, do you?
  • Dear, I know you don't like doctors but you are sick and I am worried.
  • Do we really have to go to the hospital. *cough, cough* I am feeling perfectly fine, mom.
  • Lucy, I'm going to need to take your temperature now. Okay?
  • I guess.
  • Ma'am, your daughter has chicken pox.
  • Oh my!
  • Lucy has a headache and a rash. Mrs. Heartfilia, her mother, is very concerned. She had allowed her daughter to play outside with her friends and one of them looked a little sick.
  • I just want to go home.
  • Maybe I should explain this a little better to you.
  • Okay.
  • Lucy is on her way to the hospital to get a check up. The doctors will determine if there is any real danger.
  • I feel better. I just want to walk around for as bit.
  • No, young lady. Get back in bed and rest. You need it.
  • Lucy please, get back to bed and listen to what the doctor is saying.
  • Dr. Fullbuster, the doctor, has informed Mrs. Heartfilia that her daughter has chicken pox. He explained that the symptoms include headaches, fevers, loss of an appetite, and most commonly rashes. Ms. Lockser, the nurse, was checking Lucy's condition to see how she was.
  • The pathogen would now be chicken pox, correct?
  • Dr. Fullbuster explains further what has occurred. He decides to explain the basics. A pathogen is a disease- causing agent such as a bacteria or virus. Some ways the body defends itself include: skin, tears, saliva, and mucus. Chicken pox is transmitted as virus particles spread in respiratory droplets caused by sneezing and coughing. It is highly contagious. Inflammation is a condition where part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot, and often painful.
  • Here, have a blanket to keep out the cold. We wouldn't want you to get a cold as well.
  • After that chaotic moment is over the doctor continues. Phagocytes is a type of cell capable of absorbing bacteria and other small cells and particles. Antigens are chemical markers found outside of any cell. Antibodies are used to neutralize pathogens like bacteria and viruses. Killer T Lymphocyte is a type of white blood cell that kills cancer cells. Helper T Lymphocyte influences the activity of the other cells in the immune system. Memory T Lymphocyte is a cell with the potential of becoming cancer fighting T cells.
  • I don't feel very well. My head really hurts.
  • Dr. Fullbuster explains that the pathogen in this case is chicken pox and it must have been given to Lucy in school or somewhere with other children. He goes on to describe the first line of defense which is the physical barrier also known as the skin. Tears, saliva, and mucus also help in the areas where skin is not available. The second line of defense is the inflammatory response, the actions of interferons, and fever. Pathogens could make it there if the person gets a cut.
  • Precisely.
