28/09/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

The highlights of Fela’s day were as follows:

  • cake bowl lickings after Michael made muffins and cookies. This accompanied Fela’s morning snack.
  • Fela played on the tongue drum to George Benson in concert.
  • Fela joined me for so minutes of interval training with Jules on her Improved Health youtube video. He finished the 30 minute video with a little coaxing.
  • Fela enjoyed lunch of pizza but still requested pasta, fish and pesto throughout the day.
  • Fela chose to watch T.D. Jakes on two occasions today.
  • I engaged Fela in colouring three modes of transport – hot air balloon, train and airplane. He signed his name on them afterwards, and we put the pencils back in the case afterwards and put all the pencil shavings in a bag for the bin.
  • Fela said hello to Nanna Hazel on the phone but he kept pulling me to the kitchen and requesting food when I was on the phone.
  • Fela was nodding off in the late afternoon, and I realised after reading the sleep shift report that he was over-excited from being over-tired.
  • I gave Fela a manicure in the evening as he specifically pointed to a T.D. Jakes video and did not want any music. He was falling asleep as I did the manicure so I quickly gave him his Kalms and a mug of Sleepwell tea. I chose not to offer him anything to eat as you should never eat when you’re sleepy.
  • Fela is currently relaxing quietly in the bath. I will go and help him finish off his evening routine and hopefully get him into bed early.
