09/01/2022 – Day & Evening shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela has been happy and chilled all day, and had a big smile on his face on arrival at 10:45. It was reported by Claire that he was late waking due to a disturbed night.

On arrival, Michael immediately started baking muffins so Fela was quite excited. After Fela removed his shoes and outerwear, he went to the loo then he came downstairs and we did the board. He was happy to watch Breathe new life church live stream as he licked the cake bowl.

Afterwards he played on the tongue drum to George Benson and Lee Rittenour. I had not really listened to the latter but Fela was captivated by one of his performances so I will try to locate it again for future drumming.  I danced whilst setting the table, and Fela found it very amusing indeed. Fela enjoyed his lunch of roast beef with all the trimmings.

After lunch I offered him the choice between music or T. D. Jakes and he chose the latter so no surprises there. He was looking a bit tired so I rang Nanna Hazel but it was a quick chat as she had to be somewhere. I gave Fela a manicure as requested. For his snack, he had an ice lolly as requested followed by a small fruit salad.

After dinner, Fela was offered a DVD by Michael – it looks as if he chose the Queen’s Corgi as that’s what I saw playing when I came down to give him his evening Kalms followed by snack. I used the time to do some online Admin upstairs.

Fela entered the bath at 21:15.

*Fela has been going to the loo a lot today which suggests his body is getting rid of something. He has also had a lot of fibre. Otherwise, he has shown no signs of being unwell. He had another two white willow bark this morning and evening. All being well, he should be right as rain for education tomorrow.
