02/12/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was in bed by 22:15. Three small plasters were put on his left keloid as he had been picking at it all day and the skin was pink and tender. Sleep oil was applied to chest, lower back, behind ears and inner arms.

I heard Fela at 1:15. I came upstairs and prompted him to the loo. He  spent 30 minutes in the loo sitting, being vocal and fidgeting. The bed was dry but I turned over the duvet which was slightly damp on the inside from sweat. I changed the youtube background music to nature sounds and re-fitted his eye mask. Fela continued to be vocal so I went up to him at 2:15 and put some more sleep oil on his inner arms and behind his ears. He became more quiet but was still vocal on and off. I reckon Fela slept again around 3:00.

I came to wake him at 7:35 and he sat up immediately in bed. He had his morning supplements and refreshments from 7:45. Whilst consuming them, I read some hymn lyrics to him – ‘God be in my head’ and ‘Morning has broken’; I then sang them to him. After we went through the board together, Fela entered the shower at 8:20. He completed his morning routine and was down for breakfast at 9:05 after I re-applied some plasters to his left keloid and then put keloid cream round them and on his right keloid and chin.

Fela left with Claire and Julie just before 10:00. He was vocal but seemed relatively calm.
