Fela was delayed getting into bed as he wax on the loo for half an hour and kept asking for 5 minutes. Michael prompted him off the loo (with no back chat) into bed by 23:00. I checked him at 23:45 as he was still making noises. He was still very alert and asking for cake, ketchup etc. When I checked him at 00:45, I applied a lavender and chamomile blend I use on his arms, back, forehead and behind his ears. I noticed the laptop was flashing to the beat of the deer hymns even though the lid was closed so I stopped the youtube video and switched to Fela’s mobile – I left ‘So Cool’ album on shuffle and low volume.
I checked Fela at 2:30 and 5:00 and there was no sound. I heard him around 7:15 so I took him and apple (cored and sliced as he tends to hold on to the core and then can’t transition to his tea) and pear and apple tea. I did the TEACCH board with him and read a social story of Claire working with him today since he had not seen her in a while. He seemed happy about this.
Fela did his morning routine well, and was downstairs for a hearty breakfast about 9:15. Chloe and Claire came to collect him and left at 10:00.
