Shift Report:

Michael went to collect Fela around 9:oo and brought him back to Green Pastures around 9:30. It took Fela a good half an hour to remove his shoes, coat, scarf and hat. He was fixating a lot on the kitchen. He chose to go upstairs so I did the board with him. He offered his input and chose some extra cards of Alicia – it was as if he know she was coming in later and would be on the sleep. Fela seems to like the sound of the velcro as he takes them off and putt them on the board. Whilst he was having his snack upstairs, I baked some flapjacks. Then we watched Breathe online together.

Fela became agitated for about 2o minutes in the loo before lunch [see report]. He also became agitated for a few minutes during lunch as he was struggling to cut through the T-bone steak. He soon calmed down but was quite messy and touchy during the meal. He has also been pulling his trousers down a lot as if to get comfortable. I noticed the elastic band at the top of his pants tends to get twisted so perhaps he is trying to adjust it before sitting.

after lunch I played some music on youtube – Steve wonder and various soul hits. From time to time Fela got up to point to the video he wanted. We did the board and Fela once again got up to arrange the cards in the order and angle he wanted. I gave him a manicure and pedicure and allowed his feet to air. All the pink between the toes seems to have gone. Fela really enjoyed this, and he also found it soothing to apply aloe leaf to his keloids as he usually does on a Sunday.

I prompted Fela upstairs just before 3.30pm but he went to the loo and spent a long time in there. When he came out, he had a late snack of fruit salad and some water. Adele and Alicia came to pick him up and he left in a good mood just before 5pm.

 

 

 

 

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 4 – Agitated Fela became agitated in the toilet upstairs for about 20 minutes. It was as if he became mentally stuck at the sink and couldn't get to the next step of turning off the taps. This was after church online and just before lunch. Did he have a bowel movement? Yes Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise? I tried to engage Fela in dancing after lunch but he was not inclined. Michael had passed over that Fela was on a red alert so I didn't want to press him. [It turns out that Michael was mistaken]
