13/08/2021 – Evening shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was happy when he arrived, and consented to do some colouring when it was suggested. He coloured two print-outs of boys sitting up in bed – one with the sun rising and the moon and the stars as seen through the bedroom windows. I prompted him to use different colours for different objects; he initiated sharpening the pencils as needed. I mentioned the fact that he would be sleeping in different beds when he goes to the hospital for his operation.

He thoroughly enjoyed his dinner of chicken curry and rice followed by ice cream. Fela rubbed aloe vera on his keloids after dinner on two occasions. We rang Nanna Hazel and Fela said hello Nanna and eavesdropped on the conversation. Fela was also doing foot physio by rolling the tennis ball with his feet.

He is now happily splashing in the bath.


Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? No to Did he have a bowel movement? Yes Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise? Fela was not keen on exercise but was in a good mood. Michael and I were called upon at the last minute to take the shift so we were quite tired already.
