20/05/2020 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

It took a lot of coaxing to get Fela in the bath which he entered at 21:20. He appeared tired – no doubt due to lots of walking. Fela was in bed and lights out by 22:50. The youtube video of 8 hours of deep sleep relaxing musicĀ  was left on showing the night sky, and the window was left on the latch.

*Lavender oil was sprinkled on the pillow. Aloe propolis was applied to the dry skin on his toes, some areas on his chest and his finger nails. Keloid cream applied to his face, and tiger balm to his chest, back and forehead.

I heard Fela making slight noises at 12:15 so i checked on him. His eyes were open although he was lying down and the night sky screen was very bright so I shut down the computer and put Carol music on from his phone. I did not hear him again until just before 6:30.

I prompted Fela to the loo, and he did a quick pee, but then he stood over the loo for 30 minutes until he heard Michael coming and miraculously flushed after I had been verbally prompting him for 30 minutes. He then proceeded to sit down and had a bowel movement.

Fela had his supplement with water, apple and pear tea and apple at 7:30. Afterwards, he asked for 5 whilst listening to Thursday cafe jazz lounge music. He finally entered the shower at 8:25 after Michael asked him.

Fela did his morning routine well and was down for breakfast at 9:05 to put the trimmings on his porridge. He left Green Pastures at 9:45 and seemed happy and calm.
