25/08/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela’s bandages were changed after he got out the bath. just after 10:00. He completed his evening routine, and lights were out by 22:35. Fan left on and no light blanket. Eye mask put on. Lavender oil sprinkled on black towel over pillow and v-shaped blanket.

I hear Fela being vocal around 23:30 so I went up to him and he was grinning. I decided to put the light blanket over the quilt after all as the temperature had dropped. I also massaged his back, chest, forehead and arms with some sleep oil – a mixture of camomile oil and lavender oil in  a base of almond oil. Within minutes, there was no sound.

I went to greet Fela at 7:00 but he was still sleeping. I went in at 7:20 and he was stirring. His oral antibiotic capsule was given with some water followed by supplements and refreshments at 7:35. Fela’s bandages were removed before he got  in the shower for 8:10 after which we re-bandaged him using the jelnet gauze which the hospital provided as there is more lubrication on it.

Fela was down for breakfast at 8:55. Due to an emergency with Dan, Teresa arrived on her own just before 9:30. We are due to take Fela back to the house for 11:00 when Zoe will arrive and relieve michael and me.
