Shift Report:

Fela had a warm/hot bath with his usual handful of epsom salts. He was in the bath by 21:00 and had a good soak for 50 minutes. He also insisted on a facial scrub. He was in bed by 22:45 after tea tree applied to athlete’s foot, aloe propolis to blisters on toes and finger tips, keloid cream to face and tiger balm to chest, back and forehead. I left ‘120 hymns for sleeping’ playing on youtube because it has a black backdrop so less light comes from the screen.


I didn’t hear Fela again until 7:00 apart from a cough in the night. He has been bright and bushy tailed but also sluggish in doing his morning routine which took longer than normal. He was down for breakfast around 9:45, but did not start eating until 10:00. He has been scratching his face a lot and is overdue for a trim.

He is just about to leave Green Pastures around 10:45 with Emma and Angelia.
