10/10/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was noisy on and off during the day until the evening after dinner. He was nodding off in the afternoon but I did not prompt him to have a nap on the red settee. Even with his lie-in, he only had 6 hours sleep and it was broken. This meant that by dinner time, he was overly tired hence his arousal during dinner [see report].

The highlights of the day were:

  • playing with tongue drum after breakfast to George Benson in concert.
  • Fela enjoyed licking the mixing bowl after Michael made three lots of cake and cookies.
  • watching T.D. Jakes which he chose on two occasions. He chose this over Breathe online Sunday service.
  • Mama watched with him and gave him a pedicure and manicure during them.
  • Fela watched ‘Sister Act 2’ with Michael at hand whilst Mama went upstairs to do Admin.

Fela is currently relaxing in the bath and has just started making happy vocalisations.


Arousal States – Start: 3 – Very Noisy End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 4 – Agitated Fela became agitated during lunch and dinner. I think he was rushing his food which was largely due to sleep deficit and his mind not processing normally. Did he have a bowel movement? Yes Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise? Carla had to do admin in the evening. Michael does not exercise due to his sensitive ankles.
