26/03/2020 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela had a large bowel movement before getting into bed at 22:35.  He slept in a different room – the upstairs guest room which we had recently decluttered and cleaned. He fell asleep to the sounds of nature on youtube.

I heard Fela at 2:30 when I prompted him to the loo, and then on and off until 4:30 when I prompted him to the loo again because he was still being vocal. I restarted his music because it had stopped  – this was probably why he was vocal.  At 6:30  I brought him tea and banana. He had been signing for food in the night so I figured a banana would be more filling.  After his snack, I prompted him to the loo, then asked him if he wanted to shower or go back to sleep. He chose sleep and music so he slept again from around 7:30 – 9:30, and then he awoke and Claire did his morning routine. He came down for breakfast just after 10:00 and enjoyed a nice warming bowl of porridge with chopped almonds, a handful of raisins and nutmeg with a tsp of date syrup. Fela seems calm but in a talkative mood.
