15/10/2019 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

A long day indeed. I did not expect to be on shift today, and was still recovering from yesterday. Fela was agitated the whole morning, and clearly had not slept well. As a result we were not able to do any exercise with him.

Education was cancelled because just as Fela was begining to dose, it was time to go to Green Pastures where we hoped to have education, but it was clear Fela needed sleep more than intellectual stimulation so we cancelled it. He slept for an hour about 3.40 – 4.40 pm. Afterwards he insisted on playing cards with me over and over again until dinner time which as delayed until about 6.50pm.

I managed to give Fela’s face a trim around 9pm just before he got in the bath. He was beginning to look like wolf man and was scratching a lot. He really enjoyed it and wanted me to do more but it was getting late.

At the time of writing, I’m just about to get him out the bath.

Arousal States – Start: 3 – Very Noisy End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to When Michael and I arrived this morning, Fela was at the table making a lot of noise and rocking as he took his supplements. michael thought may be the muesli hadn't satisfied him so he cooked him some scrambled eggs and beans to supplement. After Fela ate it, he calmed significantly. Did he have a bowel movement? No Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise? Fela was agitated on and off the whole morning and did not calm properly until noon just after doing the board with him to indicate he would be going to Green Pastures and just before lunch.
