07/12/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was in bed by 22:45. I  heard him being vocal at 2:10. I went upstairs and prompted him to the loo. I checked the bed, and the bed sheet was slightly damp from sweat so I changed it quickly and turned the duvet over. Fela returned to bed at 2:20 and I tucked him in. I changed the background music on youtube to rain falling off leaves which I know he finds very soothing. I could hear the wind outside so I thought this would help to drown it out more effectively.

I went to check on Fela at 7:20 but he was still sleeping. He was still asleep at 7:45. When I went up with his refreshments and supplement drink at 8:00, he began to stir. Fela was shaking his head from side to side on the pillow before sitting up so I offered him some tiger balm on his forehead.

Everything was delayed due to Fela’s late waking, and he was insisting on moving objects in the shower room and my office. Fela became noisy in the shower room after he brushed his teeth because he was using the hand towel to clean the cabinet and the sink while I was prompting him to come out. He was finally down for breakfast at 9:20 after I applied some new plasters to his left keloid. We decided to give Fela 1 x cap of White Willow Bark just before 10:00 because he appeared out of sorts and was still noisy.

Fela left Green Pastures with Dan and Dario at 10:15 after a detailed handover. He was a lot calmer and lowered the car window to wave and blow me a kiss.
