A couple of months ago, I posted about my father and his ability to sleep through being tossed out of his chair.
Well, from what I understand, it has happened 2 more times, within a 2 week time frame.
Now, my father is a very sound sleeper. I can remember when my mother would ask either myself or my sister to help wake him up for work in the mornings.
He had to be at work at 7:00 am, so we would start out at 6:00 am going into the bedroom and saying "daddy, time to get up" (in our highest pitched, little girl voices). Now, you did not walk up to the side of the bed to do that, nor did you get into the bed. Dad tended to become startled when he is asleep, so you might have to dash out of the way of a swinging are. No, you stood at the foot of the bed.
After 15 or 20 minutes, he would get up, eat the full breakfast my mother had fixed and go to work. Then mom would get us up and moving and off to school and she then went to work.
This routine, every morning and now that he is retired, he can't stay in his chair?? Pfftt..
I think we need to get him this:
