17/05/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

*We read the text late from Teresa that she would not be able to do the sleep shift as previously arranged. So, due to fatigue, we decided to let Fela sleep at Green Pastures.

Fela entered the bath  around 21:15 after passing urine. It was on the warm – hot side. He was prompted out of the bath just before 22:00, and tincture taken at 22:05. Fela finished his routine, had a bowel movement and was in bed with lights out by  22:25. I left relaxing sleep music playing softly and the black toy dog beside him.

I checked on Fela at 2:40, and he appeared to be asleep. I checked again at 5:40 and he stirred and went to the loo. He returned to bed at 6:05. I un-paused the music playing on youtube and he pulled the quilt over himself. I then heard him at 6:50. I brought him his supplements, apple, tea and water with crushed supplements. As I left him to go and do a chore and get ready for the day, he did not progress very quickly with his refreshments so he did not enter the shower until 8:20.

Fela completed his morning routine well, although he needed a lot of prompting probably due to his being distracted by the unfamiliar surroundings of waking up at Green Pastures. He was downstairs for breakfast at 9:15 and Michael gave him his supplements and porridge with all the trimmings for breakfast.

Fela is calm but taking a long time to complete each task.
