Shift Report:

Fela got out of the bath with a big smile on his face. He was in bed by 22:45 after I re-bandaged his face using only the square gauze swabs with some vaseline on them followed by the bandage and hypafix. I figured this would keep him cooler as he was sweating a lot. I heard him being vocal on and off so went up to him at 23:00, and rubbed some sleep oil into his chest, back, inner armsĀ  and neck.

I heard Fela on and off throughout the night. for example, at 2:30 I got up and prompted him to the loo, changed the youtube video to sounds of rain, lowered the volume slightly, closed the computer, and prompted him to put his eye mask back on. He was quiet again by 3:15.

I checked on him again at 5:00 and he appeared quiet. His bandage had come loose. I next heard him clearly at 5:55, and went up to him, prompted him to the loo. He signed for apple and drink so I decided to start his morning routine by giving him his supplements, tea and satsuma, doing the board then prompting him back to sleep. Fela slept from 6:45 to 8:15 when I went to wake him. He woke up gradually, then I did the board with him and changed the music to some snappier jazz to help wake him up. He entered the bath at 8:40.

Fela completed his routine, had his breakfast and left Green Pastures with Michael at 9:45.
