Shift Report:

Fela arrived at Green Pastures with Michael around 9:45. He was calm, but has shown signs of being tired especially in the afternoon. He listened to romantic classical music as he played around with his tongue drum which was a birthday present. After his snack, he watched Breathe church service online.


After lunch, he listened to his usual music on youtube starting with Stevie wonder. After his cup of tea, I prompted him to go upstairs to lie down at 14:45. However, Fela did not sleep and he woke up to go to the loo but did not return to the settee until much later. I noticed this when I came up with his juice just before 16:00.

I then gave Fela a manicure pedicure and a facial trim. He thoroughly enjoyed all the pampering. After dinner, he listened to some music – Maxwell, Justin Timberlake followed by dance music from boy bands e.g. N’ Sync, Backstreet Boys and Westlife. Fela bounced on and off for 30 minutes but he was very lethargic. After his kalms and snack, we left for his home. We left Fela around 21:00 with Claire – he was just about to enter the bath,.

*Fela has eaten a lot of high fibre and diuretic food so he has visited the loo frequently. He has been picking at his keloids a lot – a sign that he has been tired especially since he did not have a nap despite a disturbed sleep.
