18/06/2020 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was in a happy mood on arrival slightly earlier at 19:00. He had broken the skin on his left keloid and had a plaster on it. We offered him a DVD downstairs but he wanted to go upstairs so he relaxed on the red settee listening to jazz cafe music on youtube. He was very sleepy and I had to keep stirring him to prevent him from falling asleep.

He had his snack upstairs after his supplements whilst we ate our dinner downstairs. I checked on him and he was content as he ate. Fela was prompted into the bath at 21:10, and enjoyed a lovely soak in the bubbles for 45 minutes. He was slow with his evening routine and was in bed by 22:50. I decided to use the duvet tonight as the temperature had dropped slightly. He seemed happy to tuck himself under it after he had tea tree oil applied to between his small toes, keloid cream to his face and some aloe gel to his broken skin on his left keloid. On request, he had tiger balm applied to chest, back, forehead and behind his ears.

I didn’t hear from Fela again until 6:15 apart from a cough as he was settling to sleep. He was prompted to the loo and did a huge pee. He flushed and went straight back to bed without touching objects in the bathroom as he would normally. I changed his fire crackling to ‘120 hymns whilst you sleep’ to help lull him back to sleep.

Fela was vocal on and off until Michael brought him his supplements, tea and apple around 7:45. I’m not sure how much more sleep he had after 6:15, but he was bright eyed and bushy tailed when I went to greet him at 8:15. I changed his music to Friday jazz cafe on youtube which is nice to wake up to when having his refreshments.

Fela entered the shower around 9:00 after a bowel movement, and he prolonged his time in there by sneaking in two rounds of soap when I wasn’t looking. He was down for breakfast at 9:45. Emma and Angelia had been asked to come at 10:00 due to Fela taking his time. He left Green Pastures in a  happy mood and after a kiss from Mama at 10:30.
