I am a heavy sleeper on most days.
I rarely wake up, no matter how noisy things get.
However, my son’s shrieking, especially when she has a nightmare, may force me to jump out of bed to check on him once in a while. Tonight was one of those afternoons! My buddy and I had gone to bed a few hours earlier than usual, plus I was sound asleep. I was confused when I first heard him scream. I ignored it the first time plus went back to sleep, waiting for my fiance to signal me if there was another alarm. About 15 minutes later, little Andrew screamed again, plus I ran across the corridor to her room. She sat on her bed, clutching the pillow tightly. I saw terror in her eyes as she pointed towards the wall on her side. This was near the AC, plus I right away knew that whatever kept him awake was linked to the AC. She said that there was some odd banging sound that kept repeating after every few minutes. She thought someone was on the other end of the wall plus wanted to get him. I called my fiance to check it out as I helped calm down our child. She returned plus reported that the HVAC covering was loose plus had to be removed. It seems as though the wind had blown off the cover, plus it hangs loosely. Every time the wind blew, it would bang itself on the side plus create the scary sounds my child heard. My buddy and I had to sleep with him in our bed that night until she worked with her father to maintenance the component the next day.
