Shift Report:

*Sorry this is late. I completely forgot I had to write an evening shift report a I am so used to just doing the sleep report.

When Fela arrived he was very happy and immediately went into the kitchen to get a bowl and demanded tortilla chips. He saw them in the snack basket. I told him later but because he was so insistent, I gave him just a few and a cup of tea.

Fela was content to watch the fire crackling on youtube until dinner time. We all enjoyed a delicious meal of mushroom and bean ragout with brown rice. Afterwards, I gave Fela small piece of banana bread. He chose to stay downstairs after dinner, so I offered him some music and he was happy with Michael Bolton on youtube. He immediately began dancing and danced intermittently to some parts of songs. I joined him for some dancing.

Fela entered the bath at 21:15 [see arousal state].

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 2a – Vocal but happy Did his state change? Yes to 2b – Vocal unhappy Fela became very vocal just as he was about to get undressed to go in the bath. Michael and I had both given him confusing instructions. i had asked him to go upstairs to the loo, and then Michael asked him to get undressed. Did he have a bowel movement? No Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise?He danced intermittently whilst we listened to Michael Bolton on youtube but it was only vigorous for brief moments.
