Shift Report:

Fela was in the bath by 21:20. I gave Fela a facial scrub just before he came out the bath – specifically around and on the keloids and the neck and chin. I then washed it off with the face cloth. He really enjoyed this.

He was in bed and lights out by 22:45. I decided to put the duvet in the duvet cover because the temperature had dropped by the time Fela came out the bath. I still left the fan on low on a fixed setting and turned towards the sofa bed. I also sprinkled lavender oil on his pillows.

I didn’t hear Fela again until 6:45 when Michael prompted him to the loo. I went up to greet him with the supplements and refreshments. I did the board with him and he went through it again, removing and lining up the cards to his satisfaction.

Fela was in the shower by 8:00 and down for breakfast at 8:35. He was sweating slightly so was towelling himself down throughout his routine. He was signing for porridge with nuts, raisins, honey in bowl throughout the morning. He has been vocal on and off since waking – I think from an excess of energy and excitement about the day ahead.

After a detailed handover with Claire, Fela left Green Pastures with Claire and Nadia just before 9:30.
