  1. Thank u for the advice. My husband just bought me the 360 smart bed ( I know. Its as much aa a good used car but hey sleep is important) Hes actually embarrassed to say he spent that much on a bed) What surprises me about your article is the fact that sleep number couldnt get anyone out to yoi. You would think being as Premium as they seem theyd have an on call staff of techs who woukd make a hoise call day or nite. Thank god u had Nathan! Again thank u.

  2. Nathan deserves stars in his crown. What a great guy and a Dad whose in their trying. He’s impressive. Glad he’s such a great help to you as well.

  3. I didn’t know they could deflate ;- how valuable Nathan is!

  4. For some reason I haven’t been able to comment on your last few posts. Trying again…. here it goes. I loved this post Brenda! You’re back!!!! That one post where you were questioning if you should post this kind of stuff broke my heart. The answer is yes. Yes!!!!!! You are so talented!!!!!! I love how down to earth your blog is. I am very sorry about what happened to your bed and poor Nathan! But I loved the post!!!

  5. I didn’t know that Sleep Number beds could deflate either. I guess the amount of air they hold determines their firmness or softness, huh? I didn’t know that’s how they work. Very interesting. I wonder if you should check out the warranty in case there’s something wrong that made the little piece come loose and it deflate like that. You probably have the sales slip that you got when you bought it with the model number, etc. And like the other reader said you could look up the manual online and print it out for further reference.

    So glad Nathan could help you. I hope he feels better soon, poor guy. He really is a good and dependable friend to you. He sounds like he’s a good dad to his little boys, too, but at their ages the things they can think of to get into are amazing. I remember when my twin grandsons at age two or so and their cousin who is about seven months younger, were here over a weekend and got up early in the morning before the grown-ups were awake. They climbed into one of my kitchen cupboards and took out all the cake and cookie decorating sugars and the food colorings. When we found them it was like a tornado had hit that cupboard–sugars everywhere, green coloring all down the doors of the cupboard and all over them. Oh, it was such a scene that my two daughters and I just stood there speechless! I still have green food coloring on one of my cabinet doors that I’ve never been able to get off! Much to our credit, we did not yell or scream at them, just removed them to the bathroom and the soap and water and began to clean up the mess. We laughed later at what a fine time they were having!

    So tell Nathan to gate his little guys out of his kitchen if possible when he goes to bed!

    Hope your bed stays inflated and enjoy your Sunday!

  6. Nathan is a wonderful guy. What a lifesaver over and over. Enjoy your weekend

  7. I never knew those mattresses would deflate. Is it still under warranty?
    That Ivy is a real stinker. Hah. But she’s affectionate and fit right in with Charlie , so
    that’s okay.

  8. That’s crazy that your Sleep Number bed broke like that, especially so soon. I’ve never had one and the only person I know that has one is my sister and she’s never said anything about hers, so who knows. Anyway, glad Nathan could fix it.

  9. I’ll stick with my old-fashioned mattress and box spring 🙂 I have no patience whatsoever these days for any kind of attempted fixes – you don’t want to be around me when I run into a computer issue and have to hunt around online for a solution, for instance, ha ha ha! No Nathan in my life to rescue me from such fixes, sigh. I’d keep him stuffed with good stews, casseroles, banana cake and brownies.

  10. What a bummer about your sleep number bed! We’ve had ours for about 13 years and thankfully it has never leaked or deflated! My first thought would be that one of the hoses had come off, but obviously you checked that. I didn’t know about a little piece that could come loose! Now I know. Poor Nathan, he sounds like it was a bad week for him, and it’s wonderful that he took the time to come help you. Our two “rescue” cats just LOVE to go into our closets and dig around too. When the doors are shut, they’ll sit there and meow, looking at the doors, to tell us to open them. They also love to get into drawers and dig around and make a nest to sleep. It must be a comfort thing or that they like the dark… not sure what. Our cat that was not a rescue cat but grew up with a mama doesn’t seem to have that inclination! Hope you got a good night’s sleep! Marilyn

  11. Nathan is a lifesaver! He is such a good guy!

  12. There are online manuals for everything.A lot of new products do this anymore.

  13. We have a sleep number bed also and I have been worrying that when I make the bed I will knock out the tube that puts the air into the mattress. Tell Nathan we all admire his kindness.
    Cats can be a pain in the neck. We used to have one who would go into the bathroom at night and go pee on the bathmat. I learned to keep the bathroom door shut. But then he died and I started to leave the door open at times. My daughter who is severely retarded and whose bedroom looks right at the bathroom door started yelling at me when the door was open, even a crack, and now I have to keep it closed at all times.

  14. Wow, who knew those mattresses could break so easily. Thank goodness for Nathan. I hope he gets to feeling better. Have a great day. xo Laura
