The Upside to Scabies

Turns out there is an upside to Dad having Scabies (for the 10th time!).  It's such a contagious little creeper, that Dad has been assigned his own room at the Psych Ward to quarantine him from the other patients while he finishes the scabies treatment.  Now how about that?!

My Mom and I visited him yesterday and he was peacefully taking a post-lunch nap in his little bed next to his large window in his private room.  Both of his hands were resting on his chest and he was breathing deeply.  He was peaceful.  It feels good to say that.  A welcomed and much appreciated word after the last few weeks. 


  1. We'll take peace where ever and when ever we can find it.
    Cheers to the upside !

  2. Scabies is a skin infection that is caused by mites. These scabies mites burrow just under the surface of your skin and lay their eggs. As a result, your skin will feel very itchy and you will also have red bumps or blisters on the skin.

  3. Thank you for the information on Scabies. Unfortunately, we know all too much about that little pest since my Dad is very susceptible to it.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am glad that you still find comfort and happiness even if your dad is having Alzheimer’s disease. It is a condition which is really frustrating to the family but, just hold on tight and together face this moment in your life. -http://www.naturasil.com/
