07/10/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was tucked into bed and lights out at 22:30, but did not appear to fall asleep until 1:30. He was vocal on and off so I tried him with the fan, then without the fan then with the fan as he seemed to be so hot and bothered . I prompted him to the loo at 12:30, and he went but only peed a little. I also hanged the video to nature sounds with rain which I know he likes.

I went up to wake Fela at 7:45 – he was still asleep and lying down but gradually stirred. He had his supplements and refreshments at 8:00. During these, he became agitated and was rocking from side to side on the sofa bed. He began to thump his head with his hand so I quickly applied some tiger balm to his forehead and administered 1 capsule of white willow bark at 8:45.

Fela took a log time to complete his morning routine and  finally came downstairs around 9:30. Zoe and Teresa came to collect him at 10:00 but due to his agitation on and off whilst finishing his supplements, water and tea, they did not leave until 10:45.

*I noticed Fela had shifted the thin mattress down which means the metal frame was exposed under his pillows. It may be that lying on the metal caused a disturbed sleep and headache.
