Shift Report:

Fela was in bed by 22:35. The fan was left on because the room was warm and he always says yes when asked if he wants it on. I only applied sleep oil and no tiger balm as he was not overly snotty.

I hear Fela rush to the toilet at 2:30 but he returned to bed and settled within 15 minutes. I changed the youtube video to raindrops falling from leaves and ensured the monitor screen was black before leaving him. He tends to become quiet in order to listen to this video which he likes a lot.

I heard Michael attending to Fela upstairs around 7:00. He prompted him to the loo, then prepared his supplement drink, satsuma and tea with lemon wedge. He left Fela stirring the drink so when I went up to greet him at 7:30, he was still stirring. I read to him from Psalm 69, and said some morning prayers. He entered the bath at 8:25, completed his morning routine smoothly and was down for breakfast at 9:oo.

He has been calm all morning, and was calm and content when he left Green Pastures with Zoe and Teresa around 9:30. I had a brief handover with Zoe before they left.
