17/06/2020 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela enjoyed his bath especially the apricot seed scrub which mama did on his face. He was in bed by 22:35. I applied tea tree to between his small toes on both feet where there is athlete’s foot, keloid cream to his keloids, aloe gel to his left keloid where the skin was broken and tiger balm to his forehead and behind his ears. fire crackling was left playing on youtube and he covered himself with his duvet cover with just weighted blanket inside as it was quite warm.

I next heard from Fela around 2:35. I prompted him to the loo, he passed urine then returned immediately to his bed – he did not touch anything in the bathroom which was unusual. This may have been due to it still being quite dark. I changed the fire crackling on youtube to ‘120 hymns while you sleep’ as it has a dark background.

Fela was quiet until Michael heard him at 7:40. He immediately brought him his supplements, apple and pear and apple tea. I joined him at 8:15 and we ate our apples together and chatted. I changed the youtube video to ‘Thursday jazz cafe’ music. Fela consumed his refreshments very slowly and he was super chilled. I prompted him to the loo at 8:45. He did a bowel movement which had some blood in it, then entered the shower just after 9:00.

Fela did his routine at his own pace and was eventually down for breakfast at 9:45. Once he is finished breakfast, I will do the board with him as he will be spending the morning at Green Pastures with Mama and Michael.
