Follow up Meeting with Carla on 08/08/2023

Still waiting for appointment with non-medical nurse prescriber to meet with Fela and his parents to discuss whether melatonin would be appropriate for Fela to replace the Sleep Mix.
Sarah agreed that more Sleep Mix would need to be purchased from the medical herbalist until such a time as Fela can be transitioned to melatonin if it is deemed appropriate.
Sarah was informed of last week's sleep alerts, and Fela getting into a vicious cycle of waking up in the night and insisting on sleep in the day.
We discussed the possibility of limiting the length of his naps during the day to half an hour but we were not convinced this would be the best way forward.
The final versions of the easy-read (picture based) morning and evening routines were emailed to Carla who will do a bit of tweaking before they are made available to Fela and staff.
