Shift Report:

Fela was in bed and lights out by 22:40. He received a Christmas present of a toy golden retriever which he chose to name ‘Goldie’ when given a choice between Goldie or Blondie. I asked him which dog he wanted to cuddle with in bed and he chose both Blackie and Goldie.

I didn’t hear a peep out of Fela the whole night even when I checked on him after 5:00. I went up to greet him at 7:00 and he was till lying down and looking lethargic. When I checked the loo, he had done a pee in the night so perhaps he was sluggish because he had been up in the night. He was slapping and shaking his head so I quickly offered him some tiger balm and rubbed it into his head in case he had a headache. I prompted him to the loo then he came back to bed and had his supplement drink and refreshments. I read him prayers and Bible stories of Jesus’ birth while he consumed them. We then did the board.


Fela was in the shower at 8:35 and down for breakfast at 9:20. He is quiet and appears to be in a happy mood. He has been signing for “egg, butter, cooking and lick the bowl” so I’m sure he knows what’s coming up soon since it’s Sunday.
