Shift Report:

Fela was in bed and lights out by 22:20. I applied sleep oil blend to his back, chest, inner arms and forehead. He said yes to bed socks, fan and eye mask.

I heard Fela at 5:45 so by that time he would have at least 7 hours sleep. Fela had wet the bed but only slightly. He was laughing as I prompted him to the loo, then to change his clothes as I changed the bed sheet. his top was still dry so it was only his shorts that were wet. In hindsight, I will not offer him the fan at night whilst the weather is so damp and chilly.

Fela was happy to go back to bed at 6:00. I next heard him at 8:00 so I went up to greet him, prompted him to the loo. He had his supplements and refreshments at 8:25 then was in the shower by 8:5o. He got a new half bar of coconut soap so insisted he had to soap up twice. I decided not to put any dressings on him as they had come off in the night; I applied a dollop of Vaseline on each side so as yo avoid his picking at the keloids and causing them to bleed.

Fela was down for breakfast around 9:30. He has been in a happy mood since waking.
